Bergeron Likely To Play Tonight (UPDATED)

"Given how smoothly Bergeron’s recovery has proceeded, it’s a good bet the Bruins alter nate captain will make his debut in the Eastern Conference finals tonight in Game 3 against the Lightning at St. Pete Times Forum (Boston Herald)."

The latest from Twitter says that he skated this morning and looked good to go. So I would expect him to be playing tonight. If he is 100% this is a huge gain for the Bruins. Bergeron is so good on the penalty kill, and helps the defense a lot with his backchecking skills. The question now is who would sit. I have said from the beginning I think it should be Thornton, but we will update when there is official word on if he is playing, and if he does who is sitting.


Yup, he's playing...

"Bruins center Patrice Bergeron will play in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Lightning after missing the first two games with a mild concussion, according to a report by ESPN (WEEI).
