Patrice Bergeron Update: Center’s Absence From Practice Just ‘Maintenance Day’


Breathe easy, Boston Bruins fans.

Patrice Bergeron wasn’t on the ice for the team’s practice Monday in Toronto, but his absence was nothing more than a maintenance day, head coach Bruce Cassidy revealed after the session.

“He’s fine, and he’ll be back on the ice tomorrow,” Cassidy said.

Bergeron played 18:38 in the Bruins’ playoff-opening loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. Boston’s next round-robin playoff game is Wednesday afternoon against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
