Bergeron will travel with Bruins, won't play Saturday
Patrice Bergeron will travel with Boston Bruins, won't play Saturday.

Patrice Bergeron skated again Friday and will travel with the Boston Bruins, but it's unlikely he'll play against the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday, coach Claude Julien said.

The Bruins reported that Bergeron was one of 14 players to take part in an optional practice Friday morning.

Bergeron suffered a concussion in an April 2 game against the Ottawa Senators and returned to practice on Thursday.

"We’re certainly going to be cautious with him," Julien said. "As you know he has a history with [concussions] and we’re not about to take a gamble with him at this stage of the season.”

Boston subsequently lost Brad Marchand to a concussion in Wednesday's 5-4 win against the New Jersey Devils. The Bruins are describing Marchand's concussion as mild, and no timetable has been provided for his return.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
