from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,
Early this afternoon, Marc Savard will head to a doctor’s office, undergo yet another neuropsych test (considered slightly trickier than the SAT), and hope to hear the sweet words, “Yep, you’re good to go.’’
Good to go, like tonight at the Garden, in Game 6 of the Bruins’ first-round playoff series with the Sabres. Good to go, like grab a stick and strap on the helmet — one just out of the box, by the way — and work the kind of magic that was woefully missing when the rest of his teammates skated without passion Friday night in Buffalo.
Everyone in Black and Gold looked aimless in that visit to HSBC Arena. They just couldn’t point to Matt Cooke as the root cause of their Grade 9.8 cerebral malaise, as Savard can.
Savard is close to returning from his concussion. Very close. Anyone who sat in the Garden’s empty stands late yesterday morning, watching the tricky pivot scoot around with Brad Marchand and Trent Whitfield his wingers, had to draw the same conclusion. He skated with zip, confidence, even a smile.
