B's Game Notes: BOS 6 STL 3

The injury-plagued Bruins were able get a win on the road tonight in St. Louis to extend their win streak to 5 games. Blake Wheeler (2), Shane Hnidy, Vladimir Sobotka, Michael Ryder, and Marc Savard all recorded tallies for the B's. Manny Fernandez got his 2nd consecutive start in goal and made 29 saves in the win.

- Patrice Bergeron was released from Mass General after undergoing extensive tests and observation after leaving yesterday's game with a head injury. Bergeron has been diagnosed with a concussion. No time table has been set for Bergeron's return. The Bruins and Bergeron will probably be very cautious and not rush him back onto to ice considering Bergeron missed most of last season with post-concussion syndrome stemming from a hit from behind by the Flyers Randy Jones. We have seen so many NHL careers cut short due to concussions, hopefully Patrice Bergeron will be able to return to the ice without any lingering effects of his concussions.

- The B's called up center Martin St. Pierre from Providence. St. Pierre was in the lineup tonight and recorded an assist on Vladimir Sobotka's third period goal. He was a +1 in 11:10 of ice time and was 7 for 10 in the face off circle.

- The Ryder-Krejci-Wheeler line continues to impress.

- What a great individual effort by Blake Wheeler on his shorthanded goal in the first period. Wheeler took a hit, stickhandled through a few Blues, took a shot on the backhand, picked up his own rebound and deposited it in the back of the net.



- I'm not sure how Brandon Crombeen was able to stay on his feet after taking a pounding from Milan Lucic.



- Phil Kessel extended his point streak to 18 games (2 assists tonight).

- B's were 2 for 4 on the power play tonight.

- Tonight's win was the Bruins first victory in St. Louis since 1995.
