Bergeron: 'We're not waiting for a savior'

The Bruins have been shut out four times in their last nine games, and with Nathan Horton (concussion) and Rich Peverley (knee) both sidelined, the offense is looking for answers. But according to center Patrice Bergeron, he and his teammates aren’t depending on GM Peter Chiarelli to bring that solution in via a trade.

“We’re not waiting for a savior to come to Boston and help us out,” Bergeron said on 98.5 The Sports Hub on Tuesday afternoon. “We believe in all the guys in the room. We have confidence that we can do it. We did it last year.”

But if Chiarelli decides to bring a scorer in via a trade before next Monday’s trade deadline, he will have plenty of cap space to work with. According to capgeek.com, the Bruins have $13.2 million to work with under the cap and that space could grow if they decide to use the $4 million from Marc Savard being on long-term injury reserve.
