Bergeron's situation was shrouded in mystery as he was forced to leave Game 5 on Saturday night due to an unidentified injury that required him to visit a Chicago hospital for observation. After logging 5:17 of ice time in the first period of Game 5, Bergeron played only 49 seconds in the second frame before leaving the arena to seek medical attention. Speculation about the extent of his injury ranged from a concussion, to issues with his kidney and/or spleen.
While he did not participate in morning skate in anticipation of Game 6, Bergeron was able to dress for the contest. Unfortunately, his physical strength was further put to the test as he sustained a separated shoulder during the game. Despite the laundry list of issues, Bergeron finished the contest on the ice as the final horn sounded.
Through 22 playoff games in 2013, Bergeron recorded 15 points (nine goals, six assists), averaged 20:43 of ice time and compiled the highest faceoff percentage of any player this postseason (61.5 percent).
