Patrice Bergeron, one of the NHL's emerging young stars, is in Massachusetts General Hospital this morning with a concussion and a broken nose. The Bruins center is extremely lucky that he did not suffer a spinal injury in yesterday's 2-1 Flyers win over Boston at TD Banknorth Garden. The 22-year-old was injured with 3 minutes, 53 seconds remaining in the first period when he chased a puck into the left corner. Bergeron stopped short of the backboards, bent over, and was hit with a shoulder check by Flyers defenseman Randy Jones.

Dennis Seidenberg and Patrice Bergeron scored second-period goals, and Tim Thomas made 33 saves for the Boston Bruins, who clinched the Northeast Division title with a 2-1 victory over the host New York Rangers on Sunday night. Boston also prevented the Rangers from winning the Atlantic Division and securing the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. New York needs just one point in its final three games to finish first. Wings top Panthers Jiri Hudler scored with 14 minutes, 30 seconds remaining in the third period and again in a shootout to help the host Detroit Red Wings beat the Florida Panthers, 2-1. The Panthers secured a point to move three ahead of second-place Washington in the Southeast Division with three games remaining.

Winger Marco Sturm suffered a season-ending knee injury on his first shift in Boston's Game 1 overtime win over the Flyers. Sturm, the Bruins' leading scorer in the regular season, was injured when he hit defenseman Matt Carle along the boards and appeared to twist his knee when falling. Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced yesterday that Sturm suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament and torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee. "It's unfortunate news for our hockey club and certainly for him," coach Claude Julien said.

Jaromir Jagr yelled at his struggling team in the second period then gave the host New York Rangers the on-ice pick-me-up they've been lacking. "We needed to win an ugly game," said Jagr, whose NHL-leading 45th goal in the third period pushed the Rangers to a 5-4 win last night over the Washington Capitals that snapped a season-worst, six-game losing streak. Jagr always has been a reluctant leader but he is the main reason the Rangers have been playoff contenders all season.

PATRICE BERGERON turned defense into offense against the New Jersey Devils and led the defending Stanley Cup champion Bruins to a laugher. Bergeron scored two goals last night in visiting Boston's 6-1 win over the Devils. "It's something really important," said Bergeron, who scored his first of the night on a breakaway he created after blocking a shot at the blue line. "You want to defend when someone is in a shooting zone, but to turn it into a goal and make them pay is a big turnaround.

Rick Tocchet will meet with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman this week, sources have confirmed to ESPN.com. Tocchet, a former Flyers forward and Phoenix assistant coach, has been on "leave" since allegations surfaced in February 2006 that he was part of an illegal betting ring while with the Coyotes. The meeting is expected to bring to a close a long, troubling chapter for the league. Still, depending on the tone and tenor of the discussion, a decision on Tocchet's ability to return to the NHL might not be forthcoming until next week.

Tim Thomas stopped 27 shots for his second shutout of the season, and Sidney Crosby was held without a point for the fifth straight game as the Boston Bruins beat the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins last night, 3-0. Matt Hunwick backhanded a rebound under the crossbar, then had to wait 77 seconds for a whistle so officials could consult a video replay and give Boston the goal. Mark Recchi had the 900th assist of his career on Daniel Paille's first goal with the Bruins, and Patrice Bergeron added a shorthanded empty-netter as Boston won back-to-back games for the first time this season.

After being mired near the bottom of the Eastern Conference for most of the season, the Boston Bruins appear to be turning the corner. Patrice Bergeron scored 34 seconds into overtime, lifting the Bruins to their third straight victory, a 2-1 win over the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs last night. Bergeron scored on a rebound of Brad Boyes' drive from the point, putting the puck past helpless goalie Jean-Sebastien Aubin. "We are getting the results now," Bergeron said. "There is a thin line between winning and losing and when you do the right things, you are on the right side of that line.

Peter Schaefer's goal broke a third-period tie, helping the visiting Ottawa Senators to a 4-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres last night. Chris Neil, Jason Spezza and Chris Phillips also scored for the Senators, Daniel Briere and Thomas Vanek for the Sabres. "It's one game, but a very big game for us," said Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson. "We're not playing beautiful hockey.

As the Flyers prepare to host the New York Rangers on Saturday night, there is uncertainty surrounding their lineup because of injuries to forwards Sean Couturier and Brayden Schenn. Both are listed as day-to-day, according to general manager Ron Hextall. Couturier may have suffered a concussion Wednesday when he was pounded to the ice by a high check to the head by Boston's Zac Rinaldo, an ex-Flyer playing his first game against his former teammates. Surprisingly, Rinaldo escaped a suspension on Thursday.

BOSTON - Despite a critical goal from seldom-used winger Jay Rosehill, the Flyers' skid continued with a closer-than-it-looks, 5-2 loss to Boston at TD Garden on Saturday afternoon. The Bruins scored two late goals 31 seconds apart to snap a 2-2 tie and clinch the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Chris Kelly added an empty-net goal as the Flyers suffered their fourth straight defeat - and sixth loss in the last seven games. "We've been getting some opportunities, but they have to go in the back of the net, plain and simple," said winger Scott Hartnell, whose team ended a 165-minute, 1-second goalless streak but was outscored, 4-1, in even-strength situations, excluding the empty-net goal.

If there is such a thing as a satisfying loss, the Flyers experienced it Sunday afternoon at the reverberating Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers dropped a 4-3 shootout decision to Boston, but they scored a late goal in regulation to salvage a point - and they outplayed the best-in-the-NHL Bruins for a good part of the game, outshooting them, 52-30. "I think this was a good proving point," said goalie Steve Mason, who allowed a soft goal to give the Bruins a 3-2 second-period lead, then redeemed himself with several strong saves the rest of the way. "I thought we carried the play through the majority of the game.

FOR THE FLYERS, the hell began on March 15: Penguins, Penguins, Blackhawks, Stars, Blues, Kings, Rangers, Maple Leafs and Bruins, with the Blues again, the desperate Blue Jackets and the Bruins again still ahead. Yes, hell. There really has not been any comic relief, not even from the Leafs. The teams they have played so far averaged 95 points in the standings going into yesterday's games. The Flyers now have 86. They have been punching up for more than 2 weeks and they are thriving.

With his shaggy, mountain-man beard, the Flyers' Sean Couturier looks and fits the part: a menacing defender who, more frequently than not, shuts down some of the NHL's top centers. Or, as someone on Twitter so aptly called him: the Wolf of Broad Street. Couturier, 21, deserves consideration for the Selke Trophy, given to the league's best defensive forward. He won't come close to winning it because the award has morphed into a reward for a forward who is dominating both ways, and Couturier's offense is still in the growing stages.

DETROIT - Steve Yzerman is willing to cut Claude Giroux some slack. Team Canada's general manager believes veteran NHL players like Giroux deserve to have their Olympic dreams judged not only by a 15-game span to start the season but on their overall career résumé. "For guys who have been in the league a long time, they have more of a body of work," Yzerman said last night at Joe Louis Arena. "You know what type of player they are and what they do well. Younger players, a guy who has been maybe 2 years in the league, [it's]

NHL * Boston Bruins star Patrice Bergeron signed an 8-year, $52 million contract extension yesterday, the latest move by the Eastern Conference champions to get long-term commitments from key players. The new deal for one of the NHL's best two-way forwards begins after next season when Bergeron's 3-year, $15 million contract expires. Just 2 days earlier, Boston tied up goalie Tuukka Rask for 8 years, the longest period allowed for a team to re-sign its own players, for $56 million.

BOSTON - Tuukka Rask shut out the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Monday night and got enough help from the Bruins' offense to do it without another exhausting overtime. After playing four extra periods in the first two games, the Bruins made an early night of it with second-period goals by Daniel Paille and Patrice Bergeron to win, 2-0, and take a two-games-to-none lead in the Stanley Cup Finals. "A win is a win. We'll take a win any day," said Rask, who stopped 28 shots for his third shutout of the 2013 playoffs.
