from Steve Silva of the Bruins Blog at the Boston Globe,
Per the Globe’s Kevin Paul Dupont via Twitter moments ago: “Not from team, but top source has confirmed Bergeron concussion.”
Bergeron was knocked out early in the third period when he was leveled by Flyers right wing Claude Giroux.
Looking woozy and glassy-eyed after getting smacked to the ice in the left circle in the Bruins’ zone, the 25-year-old Bergeron gained his feet after a few seconds and skated slowly but deliberately to the bench.
Without stopping, the dogged center, by far the club’s MVP in the postseason, made his way straight to the dressing room — still under his own power — and was not seen for the rest of the night.
Update 1:24pm ET: via TSN—
Boston Bruins centre Patrice Bergeron has been diagnosed with a “mild concussion.”
General manager Peter Chiarelli made the announcement to reporters on Saturday, as his club prepares to face the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference Final.
