ICYMI: Bergeron Out of Hospital After Blackhawks Beat Bruins (UPDATE: Boychuk Not Discplined)

Let's start with Saturday night---

Two goals by Patrick Kane and 24 saves by goalie Corey Crawford led the Chicago Blackhawks to the brink of the Stanley Cup Title late Saturday night.

The Hawks now lead the best of 7 series 3-1 and game 5 is Monday in Boston.

The game itself had some interesting stories. Perhaps the most significant is that of Boston forward Patrice Bergeron who left the game with an un-released injury. That injury however was serious enough that he was sent to a Chicago area hospital for observation.

Bergeron, according to the Bruins, has been released from the hospital and is expected to fly home with the team Sunday morning.

The other big story was Chicago center Jonathan Toews who did not play in the third period Saturday, after taking a hard hit from Boston defenseman Johnny Boychuk. Toews' injury was only described as "Upper Body." Boychuk will not be disclplined for the hit by the league

As most of you know, hockey players are notorious, particularly in the playoffs, for playing through almost any injury, and if we were into the whole betting thing, we'd bet on seeing both Bergeron and Toews Monday night.
