LOS ANGELES — Boston Bruins center Marc Savard has a moderate concussion, the second time in less than a year that he’s been sidelined with the same injury.

The team said Monday there’s no timetable for Savard’s return and no further updates on his condition.

Savard was hurt in the second period of the Bruins’ 6-2 win over Colorado on Saturday when he was checked into the end boards by Matt Hunwick, a former teammate.

Savard sustained his first concussion in a game against Pittsburgh on March 7, 2010, a hit that put him out for the rest of the regular season. He didn’t return until the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Because of post-concussion syndrome, Savard missed the first 23 games of this season and didn’t play his first game until Dec. 2 against Tampa Bay.

Savard has two goals and eight assists in 25 games.


PENGUINS: Sidney Crosby won’t attend the NHL All-Star game this weekend because he’s still recovering from a concussion.

Crosby, the top vote-getter for Sunday’s All-Star game in Raleigh, N.C., was injured after absorbing hits to the head in successive games from the Capitals’ David Steckel on Jan. 1 in the Winter Classic and Tampa Bay’s Victor Hedman on Jan. 5.

He will miss his ninth straight game tonight when the Penguins host the New York Islanders.


RANGERS 2, CAPITALS 1: Artem Anisimov scored the decisive goal in a shootout, backup goaltender Martin Biron made 22 saves, and New York rallied for a win at Washington.

Each team scored twice in the shootout before Anisimov ended the duel by beating rookie goalie Braden Holtby.

The Capitals took a 1-0 lead in the second period on a goal by Matt Hendricks.

Marian Gaborik tied it for the injury-riddled Rangers with 6:41 left in regulation.


HURRICANES 6, MAPLE LEAFS 4: Brandon Sutter scored two third-period goals and rookie Jeff Skinner got his 18th of the season to lead Carolina past visiting Toronto.

Skinner’s power-play goal with 8:58 remaining gave the Hurricanes a 5-3 lead, and Erik Cole’s empty-netter in the final minute sealed the victory.
