Bruins center Marc Savard  will return to Boston for tests after a hit from Avalanche defenseman Matt Hunwick caused him to leave Saturday’s game with a head injury. The team is traveling to Los Angeles on Saturday in anticipation of Monday’s game against the Kings.
“He’s going to be headed back home,” Claude Julien  told NESN’s Naoko Funayama following the team’s 6-2 win. “He got shook up obviously, and for precautionary reasons, were going to send him back home to get evaluated by our own doctors.”
Savard fell to the ice following the hit, as his head appeared to hit to the boards. He missed the first 23 games of the season with post-concussion syndrome.
