Boston Bruins centre Patrice Bergeron released from hospital

Bergeron was hammered to the boards face-first by Flyers defenceman Randy Jones in the first period. Bergeron, a 22-year-old native of Ancienne-Lorette, Que., lost consciousness and was taken from the ice on a stretcher.

He was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital where a team doctor said tests didn’t show any other serious injuries to Bergeron’s head or neck.
