BOSTON (AP) — Patrice Bergeron has a punctured lung and is at a Boston-area hospital for observation.

The Bruins forward was admitted Monday night, after Boston lost to Chicago, 3-2, in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final at TD Garden — a defeat which ended the season.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli and coach Claude Julien addressed Bergeron’s status Wednesday, the same day they held exit interviews with the players.

Bergeron was already slowed by injuries headed into Game 6. He was a question mark to even play due to a broken rib and torn cartilage. After not participating in the morning skate Monday, he appeared during warmups and played in the loss. In the first period, though, he suffered a separated shoulder.

Bergeron had 10 goals and 32 points in the shortened regular season, as well as nine and 15, respectively, in the postseason. Combined, he had a plus-26 rating this year.
