CHICAGO (AP) - Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron has been taken to a Chicago hospital for observation after being injured during Game 5 against the Blackhawks on Saturday night.
It wasn't clear what Bergeron's injury is, or even when he was hurt. But he played only 49 seconds in the second period.
The Boston Bruins said on Twitter that there is ``no further update at this time.''
Chicago led Boston 2-1 after two periods. The best-of-seven series is tied at two games apiece.
