Bruins Receive Brutal Injury News

Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy announced that Patrice Bergeron will be out for at least the next two games due to a previous injury reappearing. With that, he noted that it's at risk of infection.

The Bruins play the Minnesota Wild and Winnipeg Jets over their next two contests, so they will be going up against some tough competition. With that, they are currently climbing in the Atlantic Division, as they trail the Toronto Maple Leafs by just one point and the Tampa Bay Lightning by two. If they can extend their excellent stretch of play, they would no longer be a Wild Card team. However, losing Bergeron will not help them with that. 

Bergeron has once again been having a very good season with the Bruins. In 56 games, he has 17 goals, 28 assists, and a plus-14 rating. He not only has been productive offensively but has once again been one the best defensive forwards in the league, too.

Here's to hoping Bergeron recovers quickly and gets back on the ice after these next two games.
