With the Boston Bruins’ postseason run coming to a crashing end with last week’s Game 6 defeat to the New York Islanders, the yearly tradition of Boston’s top hockey talents unveiling the list of injuries they either played through or limited them was fully upon us during break-up day (via Zoom).
Some will leave your head spinning, but in the case of a few of Boston’s top offensive threats, the updates provided a bit of a relief from the usual news this time of year tends to come with in regards to their health.
Start with some good news: Patrice Bergeron didn’t deal with any significant injuries this postseason. And that includes the chronic groin ailments Bergeron has dealt with for what feels like forever at this point.
“I feel fine,” Bergeron said. “Obviously, the usual aches and bruises of a season and playoff hockey. The groin held up fine this year, which is great news. I’ll take it a year at a time and see how my body feels and all that.”
