Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron was forced to leave Tuesday’s game after suffering a blow to the head at the 12:16 mark of the second period. Bergeron was hit by Senators forward Colin Greening while battling for a puck in the Boston defensive zone and skated directly to the Bruins bench after the hit, hinting at an issue right away. The team announced during the second intermission that the alternate captain would not return to Tuesday’s game. Given Bergeron’s concussion history, coaches and teammates alike have to be concerned with the veteran’s well-being moving forward. Fans may recall that Bergeron suffered a grade-three concussion in 2007, when he was checked into the boards by Randy Jones. He missed the rest of the 2007-08 season, and a second concussion in 2008 set him back once more. A third head injury during the 2011 playoffs also sidelined Bergeron for multiple games, but he was able to return and help lead the Bruins to a Stanley Cup victory.

Bruins add depth, swap prospects at trade deadline
