Get excited, Boston Bruins fans: Patrice Bergeron appears to be back.
The B’s center has been out for a little over a month after suffering a fractured foot against the Toronto Maple Leafs in February. But Bergeron “most likely” will play Sunday night against the Minnesota Wild, according to head coach Bruce Cassidy.
Defenseman Torey Krug, who’s missed the last two games with an upper-body injury, also is expected to play.
The Bruins teased Bergeron’s potential return with this awesome tweet:
If Bergeron indeed plays Sunday night, he’ll provide a welcome boost to a team that’s only gotten more banged up in his absence.
Charlie McAvoy (MCL), Zdeno Chara (upper-body), Rick Nash (upper-body), Jake DeBrusk (upper-body) and David Backes (knee laceration) all remain on the mend. Somehow, some way, however, the Bruins just keep on winning.
