Big news out of Boston: Top-line center Patrice Bergeron, who is a leading candidate for both the Hart and Selke trophies, is out with a fractured right foot and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
And get this: The injury happened Saturday in Toronto and Bergeron played here with it on Sunday against the Sabres in KeyBank Center.
"Following the (Toronto) game, Bergeron had an x-ray that was negative," the Bruins said in a release. "Bergeron played through some discomfort in the team's game in Buffalo on February 25. Therefore, the Bruins medical staff determined it was best to have a secondary, more definitive CT scan on Monday in Boston, which revealed a small fracture."
Bergeron has a team-high 27 goals and 27 assists in 55 games with a plus-26 rating. The Bruins will likely put Riley Nash in his place between Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak.
The Bruins also acquired winger Tommy Wingels from Chicago for forward depth prior to Monday's trade deadline.
