Should be an interesting morning at the Vault, where sidelined center Marc Savard will hold an informal chat with the Boston media for the first time in some four months and explain how he is feeling in light of last week’s news that he is suffering with post-concussion syndrome.
Savard arrived in Boston yesterday, driving down in his truck from Peterborough, Ont., after returning there last weekend in light of the neuro-psych exam at Mass. General Hospital earlier in the week that revealed he was not ready to start training camp with the Bruins.
Savard also will have his opportunity to react to an on-line report on Tuesday that suggested he may not be able to play this season. The espn.com report, refuted by Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli, sourced a member of the Bruins’ organization as the one who suggested that Savard’s lingering symptoms could keep him sidelined.
The prolific Savard has not been seen in the Boston dressing room since the followup to Boston’s elmination in Round 2 of the playoffs.
