Marc Savard suffers scary head injury


Fans all across New England were holding their breath on Saturday afternoon when Boston Bruins forward Marc Savard was badly injured during second period play against the Colorado Avalanche. Savard, who has a bad history with concussions suffered his second head injury this week when he was heavily checked in the Colorado endboards by a former teammate in Av’s defenceman Matt Hunwick. Last week this 33 year-old veteran had his cage rattled by Pittsburgh Penguins rugged defenceman Deryk Engelland. Unlike that game when Savard shook off the pain, he was not able to do that this time and didn’t finish the game. “He got shook up obviously on that hit and he’s going to be re-evaluated,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said. We don’t have anything concrete except that we’re going to be cautious and send him back home and get it checked out.” Savard, who missed the first 23 games this season due to a Grade 2 concussion suffered last March, won’t be joining the team for their upcoming road trip in Los Angeles against the Kings. “He seemed fine when I talked to him so we’re hoping it’s all minor,” Julien said. This season, Savard has scored two goals and 10 points.
