Marc Savard will not travel with the team to Los Angeles tonight. Instead, Savard will remain in Denver tonight and fly home to Boston tomorrow to be re-evaluated. Claude Julien said Savard was not showing any concussion-related symptoms after he was belted by Matt Hunwick in the second period.
“He seemed fine when I talked to him,” Julien said. “So we’re hoping it’s all minor.”
At 3:19 of the second period, after dishing the puck to Michael Ryder, Savard absorbed his second head shot in the last week. Julien said it was a clean check by Hunwick, the player traded to Colorado to clear cap space for Savard. Savard remained down for several minutes while holding a towel to his left cheek. Savard skated off the ice with assistance from Zdeno Chara and Patrice Bergeron.
