The Bruins had a ton of injured players

Patrice Bergeron may or may not be made of steel.

Boston Bruins v Ottawa Senators - Game Five

It’s a spring hockey tradition unlike any other.

No, not series-ending handshakes. The disclosure of injuries!

At the end of every season, players’ maladies go from “upper-body injury” to something much more specific.

Yesterday was “break-up day” for the Bruins, their final official media availability before splitting for the off-season.

While we weren’t able to get a writer there due to day jobs, plenty of good reporters were there and discovered plenty about what was nagging the Bruins.

Patrice Bergeron

Brandon Carlo

  • A concussion from that VERY CLEAN, WE SWEAR hit by Alexander Ovechkin. (Again, per Benjamin.)

Adam McQuaid

  • A neck injury, presumably from the interference penalty by Alex Burrows, per the Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa.

Torey Krug

  • There were rumors swirling that he had a ligament issue, and today he confirmed it was a knee injury, per Matt Kalman.

David Krejci

  • A knee injury that hasn’t required crutches (yet), per the Herald’s Steve Conroy.

Tuukka Rask

That’s all that was revealed, though there’s a chance there were others that weren’t discovered or weren’t disclosed.

Today marked the end of the road for plenty of guys on the roster, but it looks like this tight-knit group is giving it one last hurrah:
