Patrice Bergeron has an upper-body injury, hopeful for Game 5


Boston Bruins v Toronto Maple Leafs - Game Three


Talk about coming out of nowhere. We have no other real updates on what’s going on here, other than to report that Riley Nash will take Patrice Bergeron’s spot on the first line.


Tommy Wingels has slotted in on the fourth line as well, with Sean Kuraly sliding up to the third line.


EDIT (7:50 PM): From Colin, here’s a look at what some (NBCSN included) think caused Bergeron’s injury.

I don’t see a ton there, but...maybe?

Hopefully Bergeron is back for Game 5.

EDIT (10:06 PM): Turns out the speculation above was unfounded.

Pretty interesting that it’s been a lingering thing, but Bergeron’s line has still been a complete machine.
