Patrice Bergeron Dealt Gruesome Cut From High Stick By Sebastian Aho

Bergeron wanted to return immediately despite the nasty gash


BOSTON — Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron tried to remain in the game despite blood dripping from his right eye after a high stick from Carolina Hurricanes’ Sebastian Aho during Game 4 at TD Garden.

NHL officials, however, forced Bergeron off the ice and back to the locker room late in the second period. He returned to start the third.

Bergeron took the high stick from Aho and immediately skated to the Bruins bench covering the wound. Fortunately for the Bruins, Aho’s high stick presented with the team with its second 5-on-3 of the game. The Bruins, did not score during the first 25 seconds of the two-man advantage, and thus had a 5-on-3 for 44 seconds to start the third period.

Boston ended up taking a 3-2 lead with Brad Marchand’s 5-on-3 goal at 19:16 in the final frame.

Bergeron scored Boston’s first goal of the game before the Bruins went into the second intermission tied 2-2.
