Julien 'confident' Bergeron will play in Game 6

BOSTON -- Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron did not take the morning skate Monday, but will take the pregame skate according to coach Claude Julien, who is confident Bergeron will be able to go in Game 6 against the Chicago Blackhawks at TD Garden (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS).

"Patrice will dress for warmup tonight and I'm feeling confident that he will play," Julien said.

Carl Soderberg skated in Bergeron's place on the second line in between Jaromir Jagr and Brad Marchand at the morning skate.

The Bruins trail the best-of-7 series, 3-2.

Bergeron left Game 5 on Saturday at United Center with an undisclosed injury and was taken to a local hospital for observation following his two shifts totaling 49 seconds in the second period.

He was released in time to fly back to Boston with the Bruins on Sunday, but Julien listed him as day-to-day.

Bergeron has four goals in the best-of-7 series. He was the runner-up to Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews in the voting for the Selke Trophy.

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
