Last night's win against the Senators was great and all except for Patrice Bergeron getting an elbow to the temple in an accidental collision with Colin Greening. He didn't return to the game and won't be returning the line up for the foreseeable future. Chiarelli spoke briefly about it:
“He was in very good spirits,” Chiarelli said. “He was out walking today. He was annoyed at it. He was emotional [Tuesday] night.”
Yea, no shit. Fourth concussion of Bergeron's career and he'd been having one of the best seasons of his career at that, too.

Bergeron has 31 points (10 goals 21 assists) in 35 games this season. Here's the hit:
