Patrice Bergeron Could Miss 7-10 Days, Eastern Conference Finals

Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron suffered from a mild concussion following a hit from Philadelphia Flyers' Claude Giroux with 17:30 left in the Bruins' 5-1 win in Game 4 on Friday night.

Bergeron's concussion was first reported by Kevin Paul Dupont of The Boston Globe via Twitter on Saturday morning, and Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli later confirmed that Bergeron had suffered from another concussion.

Team officials did not indicated how much time Bergeron would miss, but Dupont speculates it could be 7-10 days.

Bergeron, who missed nearly an entire season in 2007 recovering from a concussion following a hit from former Flyers defenseman Randy Jones, had three shots on goal and two hits in Game 4 on Friday.
