Bruins' Bergeron likely to return for Game 5

Patrice Bergeron out Game 4 vs. Leafs with upper-body injury

Dealing with an apparent upper-body injury, and unsuccessful in his attempts to talk his way into the Game 4 lineup, Bergeron himself remains "optimistic" that he will return tonight.

Centre Patrice Bergeron is "optimistic" he can play Saturday when the Boston Bruins face the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 5 of their first-round series.

Thankfully for the Black and Gold, they might have their top-line center back in the lineup.

Bergeron, who was a late scratch for Thursday's matchup against Toronto, was a full participant in the Bruins' pregame skate at Warrior Ice Arena Saturday, taking part in contact drills and skating alongside Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak during line rushes.

"Cassidy told reporters at the Bruins morning skate: "[Bergeron] looked good this morning, I anticipate he'll play. "We'll make the final decision after warm-up". "But it's looking good". "We'll see what happens", said Bergeron. "Hopefully, it stays like that and hopefully I'll play tonight".

And, no matter how well you've played, no team wants to open the door a crack and offer a glimmer of hope. Bergeron missed Game 4 with an upper-body injury, but the Bruins still managed to come away with a win. He said he actually showed up to Air Canada Centre 48 hours ago anticipating he could suit up, before the medical staff advised against it.

And while Bergeron credited the job centre Riley Nash did in his stead - Nash also stepped in when Bergeron was sidelined with the foot injury - spending a game as a spectator took its toll. "It's something we've been through many times this year, so I was definitely confident". Right wing Connor Brown was moved up to play with Auston Matthews and Zack Hyman while William Nyalnder has been moved to a line with center Plekanec and left wing Andreas Johnsso. It's always like that, after every game, you refocus and readjust and they do the same thing.
