Milan Lucic couldn’t have picked a better time to return. The only problem was the good vibes last all of 28 seconds on Thursday night.

That’s because Marc Savard went down with a right knee injury and the injury count continued at TD Garden as the Bruins dropped a 5-2 decision to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Bruins are now without Savard, pending the result of Friday’s MRI. They are without Patrice Bergeron for up to six weeks with a hand injury and they are without defenseman Andrew Ference for six weeks with a bad groin. Add on top of that an achy back for forward Byron Bitz and TD Garden has become TD M*A*S*H for the Bruins.

Afterward, Lucic talked about his return and the bad luck of the Bruins.

Bruins veteran Mark Recchi said the Bruins can’t make excuses.

Claude Julien said the Bruins are very banged up right now.

Bruins top line center Marc Savard had to be helped off the ice just 28 seconds into Thursday’s game with Chicago at TD Garden with an apparent right leg injury.

The injury happened on his first shift of the game in the offensive zone. Marco Sturm and Mark Recchi had to help him skate to the Bruins bench, where he immediately made his way to the dressing room with assistance from Bruins training staff.

Eight minutes later, the Bruins announced he would not be returning to the game.

Savard, like Lucic and Bergeron, has been bitten by the injury bug this season. Savard has played in just 28 games this year, compiling nine goals and 13 assists. He missed 15 games between Oct. 21-Nov. 20 with various injuries.

It was like a huge holiday feast: almost too much to digest.

From the pageantry of the pregame ceremony to the singing of Sweet Caroline with eight minutes remaining to the game-tying goal by Mark Recchi on the power play to the game winner by Marco Sturm on a great feed from Patrice Bergeron, the 2-1 overtime win over the Flyers at Fenway Park gave Bruins fans something they will remember for the rest of their lives.

And when Sturm scored, the Bruins felt the exact thrill the Red Sox do when they win a game on a dramatic walk-off homer.

Afterward, the key players spoke about their emotions and what it was like to play in the first-ever Fenway Park hockey game.

Claude Julien gave it to his team in between the second and third periods, with his team losing 1-0.

Julien said his team showed the kind of character on Friday they have showed all season.

Julien said it was great to give the fans a treat.

He wasn’t particularly proud of it but Tim Thomas attempted to explain himself after his Bruins teammates took the goat horns off his head.

Before Mark Recchi tied the game with just over two minutes left in regulation, the moment a lot of fans were going to take from the game was Thomas taking his frustrations out on Philadelphia’s Scott Hartnell while Danny Syvret was taking a slap shot into the space Thomas just vacated.

Five minutes into the second period, Thomas had seen enough from Hartnell. He had taken a shot on him while he was on the ice and vulnerable just moments earlier and Hartnell was camped out in front of the net to Thomas’s right.

Thomas explained himself after the game.
