Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli made an appearance on the Dale & Holley show Tuesday. Chiarelli was first asked about Marc Savard, who will not play again in the 2010-11 season due to a concussion suffered on January 22, his second in 10 months. Chiarelli said it wasn't a difficult call to put Savard on long-term injury reserve.

 

WILMINGTON -- Bruins center Patrice Bergeron left Tuesday's practice after a puck off the stick of teammate Johnny Boychuk bounced off a partition in the glass and hit him in the chin. Bergeron was taken to the hospital, where he received stitches and had x-rays taken. Coach Claude Julien said that the x-rays were taken  "just as a precaution" and that he expects Bergeron to be in the lineup Wednesday night against the Canadiens. 

 

The Bruins announced on Monday that they have recalled winger Jordan Caron from Providence. Caron began the season in the NHL before being sent down on Dec. 6. 

 

In 20 games for Boston this season, Caron had three goals and four assists for seven points. He had 6-11=17 totals for Providence over 27 games.

 

The Bruins are currently without winger Daniel Paille for the next three games due to a four-game suspension, and will not have Marc Savard for the rest of the season. 

 

The annual image of an emotional Marc Savard struggling through his words as he talks about his future isn’t easier the second time around, especially when the questions are about whether concussions have doomed his career for the last time.



An emotional Marc Savard took the podium at TD Garden for the second time in as many seasons on Monday as he discussed his 2010-11 season ending after just 25 games. Savard has suffered two concussions in just over 10 months, with the most recent coming on Jan. 22. 

 

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Monday that center Marc Savard will not play again this season, thus ending Savard's 2010-11 campaign after 25 games. Savard, 33, suffered his most recent concussion on Jan. 22 against the Avalanche and left the game after taking a hit in the corner from former teammate Matt Hunwick.

 

"We've decided that Marc won't be playing for the rest of the regular season or the playoffs," Chiarelli said Monday at a press conference at TD Garden.

 

Following reports that Marc Savard will be shut down for the rest of the season while he continues to deal with post-concussion syndrome, the Bruins announced that they will have a press conference Monday at 2 p.m. at TD Garden.

According to multiple reports, Bruins center Marc Savard will be shut down for the remainder of the season due to multiple concussions. The team is expected to make a formal announcement Monday. Savard returned from his home in Peterborough, Ontario, to undergo further tests over the weekend. It is expected that the Bruins will place Savard on long-term injured reserve. 

 

The Bruins know that they aren’t going to get a Dec. 23 kind of game every night. These days, that line of thinking can also be revised to include Feb. 3.



A manufacturing issue has left David Krejci without his usual stick the "last couple of games," according to the the center, and he's not happy with the one he's had to use. Krejci has a contract with Bauer has to wait until Feb. 11 before they can start making his model of choice again, but for now he's using the stick he used earlier in his career but fell out of love with.
