Right after the Stanley Cup Final was complete, it was revealed that Patrice Bergeron had been dealing with a groin injury throughout the team's Stanley Cup run. However, on Friday, there was some good news about the injury.

According to Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic, Bergeron won't need surgery to fix the issue.

This is good news for Bergeron, as he will just be able to grab some postseason rest and have the injury fully healed ahead of next season.

Bergeron's injury apparently occurred during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Carolina Hurricanes and he reaggravated it during the Cup Final, which likely contributed to Bergeron's uncharacteristically mediocre performance (four points, minus-4 rating for the series).

Still, Bergeron wasn't willing to blame the injury for his performance, saying that he was “never gonna use that as an excuse,” per the Bruins official Twitter account.
