BOSTON (AP) -Marc Savard returned to the Boston Bruins' lineup Thursday night against Tampa Bay after a long fight with post-concussion syndrome.

The star center missed the first 23 games of the season.

Savard was injured March 7 when he was knocked out by a blindside hit by Penguins forward Matt Cooke. He missed the final 18 regular-season games as well as the first round of the playoffs before returning in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Philadelphia.
