Savard Finally Plays Again

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

“You don’t know what you have sometimes,’’ mused the 33-year-old Savard, “until you lose it.’’

What Savard got was a warm reception from the sellout crowd of 17,565 and an impressive night’s work in which he logged 15:45 in ice time in the Bruins’ 8-1 rout. He went without a point, but he moved well, used his stick to break up a number of Lightning passes, and came out of it all feeling fine and wanting more — which he’ll get tomorrow night when the Bruins play in Toronto.

“I was hoping for a miracle today,’’ said a smiling Savard. “It didn’t happen, but . . . ’’

But, no dizzy spells, no nausea, no depression, no needless worries. Savard traded shoulder bumps and knocks in open ice. No fake artistry about it, he played well from start to finish, although he noted feeling winded when a few of his 21 shifts ran a little longer than anticipated.
