Say a Prayer for Patrice Bergeron

The criminal element that is the Philadelphia Flyers has struck again; this time it was Randy Jones hitting Boston's Patrice Bergeron from behind, into the boards. Bergeron appeared to be knocked out and was taken off the ice on a stretcher after being immobilized. Jones was given a 5 minutes major for boarding and a game misconduct.

There's not much commentary for something like this, just that this is third time a Flyer has seriously injured another player by taking a run at them and delivering a deliberate cheap shot and at this point this league out to start consider fining the organization or coach.

Previous Flyers cheapshots from this season for anyone who hasn't seen them or doesn't remember:
