BOSTON -- Jaromir Jagr played just three minutes in the first period on Monday night before heading to the locker room after taking a hit from Chicago's Dave Bolland in the corner.

Jagr initially returned to the bench and appeared to be bleeding while getting attention from the Bruins' trainers. He eventually left for the locker room and was quickly followed by team doctors.

He did not play over the final nine minutes of the period.

He came out in the second period and took one shift only to return to the dressing room with the doctors. By the time the third period came around, Jagr was back for the Bruins, taking a few shifts but not as many as we're used to seeing from him.

In those limited shifts in the third period, Jagr didn't really look too worse for the wear but judging by his time on ice whatever was bugging him was still an issue.

Jagr doesn't have a goal in the postseason yet but he has been an effective player for the Bruins. Not only does he have 10 assists but he has also been, as usual, very tough to knock off the puck. He has undoubtedly done his role up to this point in helping the Bruins get this far.
