Savard Feels Ready For Game 1

from the Boston Globe,

“Felt great,” said Savard. “It’s getting better every day. It’s going along good.”

Savard missed the last seven games of the regular season because of the injury, which came courtesy of a Steve Begin cross-check. Savard said he hopes to practice today with teammates.

“I’m going to hopefully see action right away,” Savard said of a possible Game 1 return. “I’ve been doing everything I can. I’ve been resting on the couch. I’ve been resting every day.”

Afternoon Line

from the Boston Globe,

Chiarelli on first-year netminder Carey Price: “We have to get him moving and get the puck high. He’s very big. He’s a pads-down, blocker-down goalie. We have to get pucks high, get him moving, and keep pucks away from him on dump-ins and hard-arounds. He’s going to have pressure. He’s young and it’s his first NHL playoff series. We have to get in his head in a variety of ways.”

Savard Hopes To Be Ready For The Playoffs

from the Boston Herald,

Savard said he might have been willing to take pain-killing shots so he could play in last night’s regular-season finale against Buffalo if the B’s had needed a win to make the playoffs. It’s likely he’ll need an injection if he wants to play in Game 1 on Wednesday or Thursday, just 17 or 18 days after the injury.

“Well, it’s just a tough area where I have the injury, it’s kind of dangerous taking a shot,” he said. “But I’ll do whatever it takes to get in the lineup. There’s lungs around there and other things that come into play, but we’ve talked about it. I’m for it if it’s going to help me be better.”

If and when Savard plays in the postseason, it will be a first in his 10-year career. He has played 659 regular-season games but zero in the playoffs.

Bruins Give Bergeron Hope

from the Boston Globe,

The hope, according to Patrice Bergeron, was that his teammates could qualify for the playoffs, thereby keeping his hopes of returning this season alive….

“I don’t need to tell you how great they’ve worked,” said Bergeron. “All year, they’ve done such a great job. We’ve done such a great job. It’s just awesome. At the same time, I think we’ve deserved it. We’re a great team and we’re pretty excited looking forward. Yes, we’re in, but we can’t be too excited about it. Anything can happen in the playoffs.”

Chatting with Patrice Bergeron

From Boston Bruins.com’s Rinkside Chats,

Katie_From_ME: Since your injury, what is the one thing that you miss most about playing?
P_Bergeron: First and foremost, I’ve missed everything about the game. Being around the guys, being part of the action and part of the game and helping the team win. It’s tough sitting around and watching the team play and not being able to help.

Stockfan42:
Patrice, what are the odds of seeing you suited up for the playoffs?
P_Bergeron: Not sure yet, I still have some doctors to see.  I am not cleared for contact yet but I’m hoping to continue to make progress and get back as soon as I can.
