Is Forward Patrice Bergeron Injured?

The Stanley Cup Finals is currently tied 1-1 between the Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues as the series heads to St. Louis for Game 3. 

The series could easily be 2-0 for either team as it's been a pretty tight series. 

One thing holding the Bruins back from having a 2-0 series lead is the fact that the team's first line hasn't been playing in top form. 

Brad Marchand and linemate Patrice Bergeron have combined for eight turnovers through the first two games and it's more than the rest of the team combined. 

Bergeron hasn't looked like himself in the faceoff circle either as he won just five of 13 faceoffs during Game 2 and head coach Bruce Cassidy decided not to use him during some very important faceoffs. 

Former Bruins' coach and Sportsnet analyst Don Cherry believes that Bergeron is dealing with a more than minor injury. 

It wouldn't be surprising as Bergeron played through  a broken rib, torn cartilage and muscle tissue, a separated shoulder along with a hole in his lung when the Bruins lost to the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2013 Stanley Cup Final.
