Patrice Bergeron was injured during the Bruins' regular season finale in Montreal, and fans were outraged. However, there was a touching reason he decided to play.

When Family Takes Precedence

Initially, it was believed that an illness had sidelined the captain from Boston's lineup. However, on Wednesday, Jim Montgomery revealed that an injury was also involved.
This revelation led fans to express frustration about Montgomery allowing Bergeron to play against the Canadiens in the first place. But as Dominic Tiano disclosed, Bergeron had a heartfelt reason for taking the ice.
