During the second intermission of Saturday night’s Game 5 in Chicago, Patrice Bergeron was transported via ambulance to a local hospital because of an undisclosed injury.

Bergeron appeared to injure himself during his first shift of the second period. He cut his shift short and skated to the Bruins bench. He remained on the bench, bending over repeatedly while appearing to be in discomfort.

Bergeron took one more shift approximately halfway through the second period, but it didn’t last long. He left the ice and remained on the bench for the rest of the period, and did not return.

According to a tweet by Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet Canada, Bergeron may have a spleen issue.

His status for Monday’s Game 6 at TD Garden is unknown.
