My prediction is that a lot of this is alarmist, it's not a head injury, and he'll be back within a week or so.
I would not be surprised if he is in the lineup tomorrow night.

I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Bruins didn't practice today and aren't addressing the media until 5 because of the deadline. I'm thinking that's the reason there hasn't been an update.

Agreed on all accounts.

I watched the replay a few times and it just can't be a head injury. It was a pretty weak shot to the head..If that cause a concussion then Bergeron has some serious issues that will probably cut his career short for sure..

not sure if no news is good or bad.

on one hand saying nothing about a bad injury is smart until after the deadline so teams dont know if your desperate.

but at the same time if hes feeling fine and they are just waiting to make sure he doesnt have any concussion symptoms before tomorrow nights game makes sense. if you say hes fine just to have to contradict yourselves later looks bad.

say nothing let him rest see how he feels next time he actually has to step on the ice

Dupes/Eklund/Garrioch, all the same. Not sure I liked Bergy`s reaction to the play but no way I`m mailing it in like Dupes has already done (shocker), if it turns out to be another head injury (all fingers and toes have been crossed all day here in class it isn`t) but if so, it would be legit cause of concern moving forward.

I`m saying Bergy leads the B`s to their 2nd cup in 3 years though for the sake of positivity

Would I be incorrect in stating that there appears to be no call up from Providence ala Spooner either which "may" be a sign that he will be ok?

They can make an emergency call-up tomorrow if they have to, so I would say no, it's not a sign. I bet they'll wait until tomorrow for him to report how he feels, then go from there.

He clearly knows something is wrong right away, and you can tell he is hurt, but he pretty much pops right back up and begins skating off.

Once he gets up, the puck is shot past him, and he actually reacts to the puck, as if he may have to continue to play before he can get off the ice. This stood out to me because if it was a head injury, it showed me that he had the presence of mind to follow the puck and react to it.

He then skated off pretty nonchalantly and I think he actually tapped gloves with another player on the ice.

Once again, this could all mean nothing, but I didn't get the sense that it was anything major. He might miss some time, but hopefully he is able to come back.
I agree with these points.

Although his reaction to me was a "****, here we go again" (concussion). It was a sneaky little elbow to the head from whatever assface was next to him during the play.

It was a clean play

It was a pretty high-impact elbow straight to the side of the head. Bergeron has taken much worse abuse in recent seasons and been fine.

Please, nothing sneaky about it, purely incidental contact

That wasn't how it struck me. Unintentional perhaps. But a definite elbow to the head, I noticed it when it happened live on TV and Bergeron's reaction.

Edit. Definitely the elbow to the head although I guess I'd have to agree it was not intentional. Intentional versus unintentional doesn't decide whether something was questionable or not, however. Not to me at least.

Bergeron ran into his elbow...certainly wasn't intentional

Unbelievable injustice that filth like the Cooke`s/Torres` of the league rarely miss a game with injury and one of the class acts in this league may be in some difficulty , just isn`t fair sometimes

I don't think they would opt for a callup regardless. With Jagr coming in, they would have had an extra body anyway.

LOL, NathanHortonFan, that was not intentional at all. Bergeron ran into him. Very unfortunate play but Greening did nothing wrong.

Watching it again and seeing Bergeron out of it after the contact...it just doesn't look good.

It's such a shame that guys like Bergeron and Crosby will forever have their careers riding on a thin line with these head hits/concussion history.

So fun to watch, yet so scary to know that his season/career could be cut short on an instant and on a freak play.

No shoulder or elbow to the head there. There obviously was contact, but it was Bergeron's head running into or making contact with the Ottawa players elbow, it looked like, not the other way around.

Didn't like Bergeron's reaction to it, but I'm sensing that he himself reacts with extra precaution whenever he receives any kind of a blow to the head. For all we know, he may be under doctors instructions that whenever he receives what he feels might be a significant blow to the head that he should automatically leave the game and go get checked out. I'm suspecting either something along those lines, or perhaps it was a neck strain. I won't be sitting comfortable until we know for sure, but I don't think there's any particular reason to be feeling pessimistic.
