Bruins’ Bergeron banged up in Game 5

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.
