Playing Hurt

Bergeron and Toews – two stars hurt in the same game that threw game 5 momentum in different directions last night.  It was killing Toews to have to sit.  At one point it appeared he pleaded with the coaching “Gimme one shift” but he didn’t play in the third.  Watching Bergeron coast around for three 15 second shifts and then gut out the pain when he got to the bench was telling.  He’s big time hurt.  What a disappointment it must be to make  it this far, playing so well, only to go out for the final couple of games with everything on the line.
