Specifically, he tore his ACL and PCL, according to the Globe and just about every reporter Twittering from the press conference going on now.
Various such Tweets say that Perk is on crutches and looks despondent. On missing Game 7:
“There ain’t nothing I can do about it.”
On the severity of the injury:
Perk just said that if this had happened in December, he’d have been out for the season, according to the C’s official Twitter feed. He mentioned the possibility of missing the start of next season, according to A. Sherrod Blakely’s Twitter.
On how he’s doing:
“Physically, I’m doing better than I am mentally.” (via A. Sherrod Blakely’s Twitter). And this: “I’d be lying if I told you it didn’t hurt. It hurt. Game 6 of the Finals, not being able to help your team.”
At this point, you just hope that Perk can recover fully and be the player he became last season and this season. Get well, big fella, and know this: Boston fans adore you.
