Bruins' Bergeron takes part in full practice

BOSTON --- Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron took part in his first full practice since his latest concussion, another indication that may be nearing a return to game action.

Wearing a white jersey, Bergeron was one of the first players on the ice on Monday. He was out there about an hour as the Bruins prepared for Tuesday’s Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final at TD Garden and left about 10 minutes before the practice concluded as the drills became a little more physical. Bergeron was not made available to reporters.

“It would be nice to have him back as soon as possible,” Bruins forward Nathan Horton said. “You don’t want to rush that. You have to wait until you’re 100 percent. He looked god out there today. I’ll be nice to get him back.”

The Bruins have been mum on Bergeron’s progress since he suffered the third concussion of his NHL career in Game 4 of the second-round series against the Philadelphia Flyers on May 6. Boston coach Claude Julien said that Bergeron is still going through the league-mandated concussion protocol and he couldn't offer up any timeline. 

"It's the protocol that we're going through and the process that he has to go through," Julien said. "We don't have anything else more to report because there's nothing else to report in regards to him. 

Asked if he was ruling Bergeron out for Game 2, Julien replied, "no comment."

Bergeron --- the Bruins’ top playoff scorer with 12 points --- returned to the ice on Saturday, a day after he missed Game 1 as the Tampa Bay Lightning earned a 5-2 victory. He also skated on his own Sunday and went through some drills with an assistant coach.

“He looked good,” Boston forward Rich Peverley said. “He looked lie himself. Hopefully he’s back soon.”

Yeah GADAWG, I'm sure the Bruins are so scared of your big, bad Bolts that they need the zebras to protect them. I hope for Tampa's sake that the Lightning are not reflective of some of their clueless, dillusional fans, such as yourself.

Did you watch the first game? Other than the score (which counts) Boston dominated the game. The defense needs to get off their heels be more aggressive like they were with Philly. Tampa won't get those cheap ass goals tonight. Julien better have the team flying around and hitting! And last but not least...the B's need to quit playing Penguins hockey...shoot the frickin puck on net and stuff home the rebounds! Quit looking for the perfect shot.

So I'm guessing you all believe Bergeron is better than Ovechkin?  Because when Ovechkin was on the ice, the Bolts dominated him.  Apparently Bergeron is THAT much better that he can fuel the Bruins right past the Lightning....  I was nervous for the Bolts going into this series because of Boston's talent, especially goal tending.  Now I'm just nervous that our players are going to wind up concussed from another cheap shot.  Have some integrity for the game Bruins.  A cheap shot with less than a minute to go? BS.  Go Bolts.

Insults from a Boston fan mean nothing.  Your team is reflective of the fans taking baby sucker punches at the end of a play but waiting until the refs were in the way before you threw a punch.  We will see tonight what happens.  It will be real funny when the Bruins are out, the Celtics are already kicked to the curb and the Bosux spend the season looking up at the Rays!

What the Bruins need one more guy to take cheap sucker punches at the end of a game when the Lightning are beating thier a$%'s again!  Bring on Bergeron just another punk for the Lightning to humiliate on the ice as we continue to dominate our way to the Cup.

Well, obviously it's the scoring.  It's kind of important in hockey.  A point a night these days is phenomenal 80 points?  Hasn't even come close, 73 in 2005.  7 years now is a good sample.  He doesn't score allot.  He makes 5 mill, very well paid for a guy who averages 40 points.
40 pt guy?? do you have a clue? last year he had 57 pts, 2 years ago 52.....thats more then far as a pt per game, well when its playoff time he does get a pt a game.........this year he's leading the team with 12 pts in 11 games, and last year, almost a pt a game too....with 11 pts in 13 games.....We need Bergeron to make the cup!!

I want the guy to stay healthy and help us win.  I don't think he's faking.  I felt like writing this.  I like the guy.  God speed Patty.
Are you bi-polar, I still dont know if you wanted to bang him or kill him after reading you post.

Looks like he's getting well pretty fast. Good for him and the Bruin's. The sooner he can fit into the starting lineup the better. Good spark plug for Boston. Go B's
