07:58 AM ET 04.03 | The promise of adding a legend gave way in Boston to a significant question mark in the midst of Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Senators. After trading for veteran forward Jaromir Jagr earlier in the day, the Bruins lost the services of assistant captain Patrice Bergeron midway through the second period Tuesday night when he left with what appeared to be a head injury and did not return for the remainder of the game. Bruins coach Claude Julien did not have an update on the team's top player after the game, and he did not want to speculate what the team would do if Bergeron is sidelined for an extended amount of time. Bergeron has a history of head injuries and has suffered three concussions during his career.

Hoping for a speedy recovery. Hope it isn't too serious.

I love this guy, hope it he is better by the start of the 13/14 season.

My 18-1 ticket on TOR looks better and better !!

I guess if you have a history of concussions, like Bergie, it doesn't take too much to trigger another one.

Patrice Bergeron hurt? Not to worry. They have Jaromir Jagr.

Is Jaromir REALLY as old as Gordie Howe?

We really need to hijack one of these threads and dedicate it to today's trading deadline. I vote for the Avalanche thread since they stink.

Get well Bergie, that sucks.

No. Jaromir Jagr didn't celebrate his 85th birthday yet. Gordie Howe beat him to it by a few months.
