Bruins’ Patrice Bergeron must weigh price being paid

Patrice Bergeron is resting, recovering from another hit to the head, and the Bruins remain hopeful that their star center will rejoin them before the conclusion of this shrink-wrapped 2012-13 season.

Based on how disheveled their game turned immediately upon his exiting the lineup midway through Tuesday’s victory over Ottawa, the Bruins need Bergeron back as soon as possible, his value to the club more essential than any player acquired by any club, including Boston, at last week’s trade deadline.
