Friends, light your prayer candles and pray to the Hockey Gods for there is word on Patrice Bergeron’s injury.

It’s not good but we’ll take it.

This is a very painful injury. Seeing that the sternoclavicular joint basically is affected by movement of arms, shoulders, and chest, Patrice cannot be feeling too good. Adding a rib injury to that must make it feel worse.

The good thing is that this doesn’t look like it needs surgery as broken clavicle often does for athletes. However, since we don’t know if it’s a dislocation or a sprain, treatment may very. As will all cartilage injuries, if it doesn’t require surgery it requires rest.

Like Chara, Bergeron will be out for at least 4 weeks. It will seem like forever but this team will soldier on.

Get well soon, Bergy.

Hi Pals!!
Nothing quite like a blow to the sternoclavicular. I’ve experienced this one several times!!!! Dude, sneezing…..
Life without Ste Patrice begins. So we get a well rested Bergy for the strtech drive, no? Is a move needed? I hope Sweenius lets the cubs give it there best shot. I guess if it doesn’t pan out, the B’s could appear desparate and face higher prices, but, what the hey? Roll them dice. Let the chips fall where they may, all the cliches!!!
Is there any good.news????

Hi all.

Big darts match tonight – we’re playing the team we beat on the last day of last season, thus costing them the championship!

Needless to say we’re not their favourite team…

Detroit at the Pizza Box tonight, right? I’ll try to catch some of it live. The cubs have done a great job but it would be good to have Charlie and Killer back.
