Bruins Vs. Flyers, Game 4: Patrice Bergeron Injured In Third Period

Patrice Bergeron suffered an undisclosed injury following a hit from Philadelphia's Claude Giroux with 17:30 left in the third period of the Boston Bruins' 5-1 win in Game 4, completing a four-game sweep of the Flyers.

Bruins head coach Claude Julien didn't have any updates on Bergeron's condition following the game.

"I don't know. I have no update for you guys right now," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "Basically, I can't give you anything more than that."

Team officials did not release any update on Bergeron's condition after the game, but that didn't stop some from speculating. Mike Petraglia of WEEI.com writes about one injury possibility that no one wants to hear: concussion.

While the Bruins didn't release any information on the particulars of the injury, it appeared that Giroux's shoulder made contact with Bergeron's head. Bergeron slowly skated off the ice on his own power to finish his shift but didn't return.

Bergeron had three shots on goal and registered two hits and a plus/minus of minus-1.
