Bergeron taking part in Bruins' optional skate

Injured Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron is taking part in the team's optional morning skate Thursday at TD Garden.

Bergeron has missed the past four games with a concussion, but Wednesday, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli told a local radio station, 98.5 The Sports Hub, that Bergeron had begun working out and is "on his road to recovery."

In addition, Boston coach Claude Julien said injured forward Brad Marchand "was being reassessed by doctors this morning, so we'll have an update later today."

Marchand was injured late in the second period Wednesday night when New Jersey Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov hit him in the head with an elbow.

Volchenkov received a five-minute elbowing major and a game misconduct. He was suspended four games by the NHL Department of Player Safety on Thursday morning.

Quote of the Day

You can be hyped all you want, but his game will speak for itself. He's obviously going to be a great player so we've got to make sure we keep an eye on him. Whether it's his first game or his 1,000th game, our job is to take care of business, shut him down.
