According to TSN, Marc Savard is out indefinitely with another concussion. With Savard out from the lineup, look for Tyler Seguin to be moved back to the middle. If Savard’s injury is long term and Seguin struggles at center, the Bruins may look to add a veteran center before the trading deadline. Here are the projected lines for tonight’s game against the Kings.
UPDATE: Here is what Fluto Shinzawa of the Globe added to the Savard situation:
Marc Savard has been diagnosed with a moderate concussion, as the Bruins feared. Savard suffered his latest head injury on Saturday when he was hit by former teammate Matt Hunwick. Savard flew home from Denver yesterday and met with doctors today. TSN first reported Savard’s concussion.
There is no timetable on how much time Savard will miss. On Dec. 20, 2008, Patrice Bergeron suffered a second concussion when he ran into Dennis Seidenberg. Bergeron didn’t play again until Jan. 27, 2009. However, all players react differently to concussions, and there is no way to project Savard’s recovery until his symptoms wane. Yesterday morning, according to Claude Julien, Savard was complaining of headaches.
