Bruin’s center Marc Savard, who suffered a Grade 2 concussion on March 7th, will undergo neurological testing today to determine if he is ready to be medically cleared to return to the ice.
Savard skated for the first time yesterday, stick handling and taking shots with no problems. He is scheduled to take the ice again this morning. Assuming he passes the test this afternoon, the B’s sniper will begin to prepare for his return to play.
"I haven't done anything in six weeks. I felt a little short-winded out there [Monday] because of that and it's going to take some time. Hopefully a little sooner rather than later because I'm a little excited because I'm feeling good and it's playoff time."
Savard is anxious to return and hopeful that he will be able to do so before the end of the series. Realistically, he has some work ahead of him to get back into playing shape. It’s now on the rest of the team to stay alive long enough to give Savard the opportunity to play.
