Bergeron On Montreal Fans Cheering Chara Injury: “I Was Surprised”
Bruins Center Patrice Bergeron joined Gresh and Zo for his weekly visit.
He talked about the win over Montreal last night, gives us his thoughts on the Montreal fans cheering Zdeno Chara’s injury and had some news on Rich Peverly’s injury.
The Bruins have been struggling lately and almost gave up the game to Montreal Wednesday night. Fortunetly Tim Thomas was able to shut down the Canadiens in the shootout to give the B’s the win.
How did Bergeron feel about the win to start off a six game road trip?
“I think it was a good road win. Monteal played a good game, they played hard, they played physical and so did we. I thought it was a great game to be a part of. Yes we let that lead slip, but I thought we stayed put and we didn’t panic and we found a way to get that extra point.”
Zdeno Chara took a puck to the chin and blood was spilled on the ice. Montreal fans cheered at the injury not knowing if it was serious or not. Luckily for the captain it only took a few stitches to close the gash on his chin. Was Bergeron surprised by the reaction by Montreal fans?
“Yeah, obviously I was surprised especially when a guy gets a puck near the face, around that area. I think he got it in the throat, but still usually you just wait and see if he’s okay and then you do whatever.”
Bruins forward Rich Peverley was injured in the third period after a leg hit from Montreal’s Hal Gill. What does Bergeron know about the forward’s status?
“The only thing that I can say that I know is that he went back home, I think last night or this morning. He’s not going to be with us for the rest of the trip, so hopefully he gets some treatments and he get back with us as soon as possible.”
