Toews, Bergeron return from injury to play in Game 6 of Stanley Cup Final

BOSTON - Bruins centre Patrice Bergeron did not take part in the morning skate ahead of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup on Monday night.

Bergeron is listed day-to-day after leaving Game 5 on Saturday night with an undisclosed injury.

Carl Soderberg took Bergeron's place between Jaromir Jagr and Brad Marchand at the skate. He also filled in for Bergeron after the Bruin went to hospital during the last game.

Bergeron's morning absence does not mean he is out for the game. The Bruins could be resting him — or trying to keep the Blackhawks guessing.

Chicago, whose morning skate followed Boston's, leads the final three games to two.

The Hawks have their own injury question mark in the form of captain Jonathan Toews, who spent most of the third period of Game 5 on the bench.

The heat will literally be on both teams. The forecast high for Boston on Monday is 33 C.

There was a thin layer of fog on the ice when the Bruins started their morning skate.
