Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said at Wednesday’s breakup day that in addition to Patrice Bergeron‘s broken rib, separated shoulder and torn cartilage and muscle tissue, it was revealed after Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals that Bergeron also had a small hole in his lung.
Bergeron was taken to the hospital following Game 6, where they discovered the hole in his lung. The team was unclear as to when or how the lung was punctured, though it was likely from a needle as a means of freezing the cartilage or from his broken rib. Bergeron left Game 4 briefly, left Game 5 and was taken to hospital and Chicago, and remains under observation in the hospital from his trip after Game 6.
