BOSTON Marc Savard is en route to Boston today to meet with local doctors for another round of testing after his latest concussion suffered against the Colorado Avalanche, but there isnt likely to be an update on his condition.
Its something Ive been asked about every day about Savvy, and I respect that," said coach Claude Julien. "But I wont be able to have an update every day, and its up to the organization, when they have some information, to share it with you. I know hes on his way back, but from there on in its out of my hands. Itll be our people, doctors and medical trainers thatll be dealing with him.Julien added that a decision on whether or not Savard will attempt to play again this season may not "be made tomorrow or the day after."Savard was originally scheduled to come back to Boston on Wednesday, but the snow and ice didnt allow him to fly out of Peterborough, Ontario, until Thursday. He's still suffering from concussion symptoms nearly two weeks after the hit from Matt Hunwick while skating against the Avs, and the Bruins have discussed potentially shutting down the center for the season.With concussions, as you know, it could a matter of saying were going to give it another week and see how he feels, said Julien. But we dont know when that answer is going to come. Thats where were at with Savvy. The question of how its going to impact the team if hes out, we wont know that until we have the information on whether hes out or not. Tuukka Rask was the first goaltender off the ice at morning skate for the Bruins at TD Garden, and apparently will get his first start coming out of the All-Star break. Former Bruins goalie Andrew Raycroft will get the start for the Stars. Ironically enough, Raycroft is the goaltender who was dealt to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Rask four years ago. Mark Stuart will again be a healthy scratch for the Bruins as it becomes more and more obvious that Adam McQuaid has supplanted Stuart as a starting defenseman for the Bs.
