Patrice Bergeron injury: Bruins forward taken to Chicago hospital

Bruce Bennett

Bergeron entered an ambulance under his own power as the third period began.

The injury to Patrice Bergeron that kept him out of most of Game 5 is worse than it appeared. WCVB-TV's Mike Lynch reported on Twitter that Bergeron left the United Center in an ambulance as the third period got underway. The Bruins have confirmed the report.

Hockey Night In Canada had more information:

There's no official word on what kind of injury Bergeron is suffering from, but he did pull up lame at the end of a shift in the second period. Bergeron has been one of Boston's best players this postseason, so his loss is a critical one.
