Patrice Bergeron Played Game 6 With A Hole In His Lung


Patrice Bergeron has been in the hospital since his Boston Bruins lost the Stanley Cup to the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday. He played 17:45 in Game 6. Even for a hockey player, this was surprising. Because:

Already established: Bergeron suffered through a broken rib, torn cartilage and muscle tissue and a separated shoulder, which he injured during Monday night’s Game 6 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.
GM Peter Chiarelli confirmed on Wednesday that doctors found Bergeron had a small puncture in his lung…

it was likely from a needle as a means of freezing the cartilage or from his broken rib.

It’s not a bullet, but it’s the next-best-worst thing. Alex Rodriguez once sat out a game because he cried too hard during The Vampire Diaries and his eyes hurt.

    Hockey players are far and away the toughest, grittiest professional athletes in sports, and Bergeron typifies that with class, determination and integrity.
