The Boston Bruins must feel like they’re in a perilous situation in Game 5 on Saturday. It’s bad enough that Patrick Kane has scored two goals to make it 2-0, but now it appears that regular Selke Trophy candidate Patrice Bergeron is banged up.

Bergeron missed some penalty kill shifts and was only able to take a brief 10-second shift after showing signs of injury in the second period.

Head coach Claude Julien was cryptic when asked about the 27-year-old’s status, saying only that the team “will give him some time.”

No doubt about it, Bergeron will be missed if this ends up being serious. As the playoffs have gone on, the hockey world has been clued in to his status as a top two-way player.

We’ll see if that means “limited shifts” or something more serious as the game (and series) progresses. Stay tuned for updates.

Here’s video that shows when he might have gotten hurt:

Update: Bergeron remained in the locker room to begin the third period.

    Missing three of their top five centers and only having a shadow of the true Horton will probably be the end of Boston’s run. Real shame as they were really rolling until Campbell went down……#notdeadyet

    By the way he pulled up it looked like it was his back. I’m surprised he elected to stay on the bench rather than go in and get treatment if possible. He wasn’t helping them by staying on the bench, why not get it looked at?

    a couple shots and he should be back put there unless its real serious, which is the way it looks. Big blow for the Bruins. Go Hawks!

    Left in an ambulance….yet stayed on the bench afterwards….very odd.

      Left in an ambulance?
      Going out on a limb here, but I’m guessing Bergy didn’t bring his car to Chicago.

    I hope Bergeron is o.k…great player, fun to watch and adds a ton of excitement to this series.
