Marc Savard Does Not Remember The Hit By Matt Cooke

from Stephen Harris of the Boston Herald,

All Marc Savard wanted to do was go home and sleep.

“Right now, I just need rest,” said the injured Bruins [team stats] star as he sat in Pittsburgh International Airport awaiting a mid-day flight to Boston. “I’m exhausted.”

Savard was knocked unconscious by a blindside hit to the head from Penguins forward Matt Cooke Sunday, suffering a concussion and damaged jaw during the Bruins’ 2-1 loss. He was walking and talking very slowly in the airport, although the fact he was able to traverse the several hundred yards to the Boston gate under his own power had to be a good sign. With many concussed athletes, it’s sometimes difficult to walk across a room.

“I think that’s a good sign,” said Savard of his being able to walk without dizziness or balance problems. He was examined by physicians in Pittsburgh yesterday before he was cleared to fly.
