Looks like we’re finally going to get to see Marc Savard’s return for
the Boston Bruins. Yesterday, we first reported that it was likely he
could be available for Game 6 against the Sabres but even after passing
his neuro tests the team decided that holding him out of action for one
more night would be best for his health. It was understandable,
especially considering that the Bruins weren’t facing elimination.
TSN is reporting this
morning that the Bruins are expected to formally announce Savard’s
availability for Game 1 of the second round.
At one point it
looked like Savard’s career, and at the very least his season, could be
in jeopardy from the concussion he suffered as a result of Matt Cooke’s
hit. He was tired, lethargic and could barely make it out of his
bedroom, let alone out of the house to practice.
quick turnaround had Savard back on the ice and ready to play, providing
a big emotional boost for the Bruins as they prepare to face either the
Pittsburgh Penguins or the Philadelphia Flyers in the Eastern
