Rask and Bergeron both injured overseas

This is why I hate when players go overseas and play while a lockout is going on, injuries. Goalie Tuukka Rask has a minor groin pull and Patrice Bergeron has an upper-body injury. Luckily it doesn't seem to be a head injury for Bergeron which is what I worried about when I read upper-body injury.

About Tuukka Rask's injury:
A local reporter, who is covering the team Rask is playing for — HC Lasselsberger Plezen, tweeted that it appeared to be a minor problem, since the goalie was able to finish the first period. But Rask, who is playing in the Czech Republic during the NHL lockout, did not return for the second period.

After the game, Rask told reporters the injury was not serious.

"I slightly pulled my groin," said Rask. "I had groin problems last year, so I took a little rest as a precaution."

About Patrice Bergeron's injury:
NESN's Naoko Funayama is reporting that Bergeron has an upperbody injury and is day-to-day. He missed the last game but practiced today, and is questionable for tomorrow's game. Source

Marc Savard update

No real news on hockey returning. Both sides keep rejecting each others' offers and it's getting depressing. I don't expect hockey any time soon. We may even lose the season which sucks.

Anyways, some more not so good news as Marc Savard was on Twitter (@MSavvy91) yesterday and said that he tried working out but he didn't feel good at all. Savard says that he doesn't see a comeback in the foreseeable future. Read his tweets below. We wish you the best and hope you get fully healthy again so you can enjoy life. You'll always be a Bruin Savvy in the fan's minds and hearts.
