Someone please make the injuries stop.

It's the news we were all fearing: the Bruins announced today that Patrice Bergeron will be out long term.

From the team:

"Patrice Bergeron sustained a rib and sternoclavicular injury during the second period of the Bruins vs. Stars game on November 16 in Dallas."


Per Wikipedia:

"The sternoclavicular joint or sternoclavicular articulation is the joint between the manubrium of the sternum and the clavicle bone. It is structurally classed as a synovial saddle joint and functionally classed as a diarthrosis and multiaxial joint."

This makes it sound like it was, in fact, in the shoulder-ish area.

Not ideal.

The Bruins recalled Colby Cave from Providence as well, filling Bergeron's roster spot.
