Immediately after Monday night’s heartbreaking Game 6 loss that handed the Stanley Cup [1] to the Blackhawks, Patrice Bergeron [2] re-entered the hospital and remains there, the team announced Wednesday morning during break-up day at TD Garden.

Bergeron announced after the game that he was playing with a broken rib, torn cartilage and torn muscle from earlier in the final before suffering a separated shoulder during Game 6. The team said Bergeron was “under observation” at a local hospital.

Brad Marchand [3], Bergeron’s line-mate, spoke Wednesday about what it was like to watch Bergeron try and play through the injury in Game 6.

“You can’t say enough about him,” Marchand said. “He’s such a warrior. The fact he was able to play the whole game, every time I came to the bench, I was kind of nervous about him. I kind of watched him and I could see the pain and agony he was in. It was unbelievable to see him play through that. It just gives you that much more respect for him.”

Rich Peverley [4] added, “It’s hard not to be in awe of him, as a player and a man.”
