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

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
