Marc Savard got a scare last week when he was slammed into the boards during a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, but came out of the incident with only some recurring neck pain.
The 33-year-old center might not have been so lucky this time around as Savard had to be helped off the ice little more than three minutes into the second period against the Avalanche with what appeared to be a head injury.
