Patrice Bergeron‘s injuries became a main storyline on the Bruins’ attempt to win their second Stanley Cup in third years, but it doesn’t appear there will be much to worry about moving forward. Bergeron met with the media on Tuesday morning, and he gave an update on his long list of ailments. The Bruins forward suffered a rib injury during the playoffs that led to torn cartilage, and he eventually suffered a punctured lung. Things got worse when he separated his shoulder in the club’s Game 6 loss that ended the Stanley Cup Final. Shortly following the end of the series, Bergeron went to the hospital where he stayed for a couple of days. He insists, however, that he’s feeling better, and the main course of action at this point is just to rest. “I’m feeling a lot better,” Bergeron said. “I guess the ribs and the shoulder now just needs to get some time to rest but it’s a lot better.” He won’t need surgery for any of the injuries, either. “No surgeries on the shoulder,” he said. :It’s just separated. It’s just going to heal. I’m going to need, obviously, some treatments. I’m going to have to do that and the rib and the cartilage but there’s no treatment for it. It’s more — take time to rest it and make sure it heals on its own.” Bergeron is hopeful that the injuries won’t keep him out of training camp. The Bruins, because of their deep playoff run, won’t have a ton of time to rest and recuperate, but the Boston forward doesn’t anticipate the injuries to make him miss much if any time. “I should be fine for camp for the beginning of camp for sure,” he said. “Hopefully but I’m pretty positive that I will be. I just need to I guess a couple weeks — like two or three weeks I’m guessing. I don’t know. I don’t have a straight answer for you because I’m not sure, but I’ll go with how it goes.”
