Bergeron back in Bruins' lineup for Game 3

Patrice Bergeron took the wamr-up as the Boston Bruins center will play in his first contest since he suffered a concussion on May 6.
 
Earlier in Thursday, Bruins coach Claude Julien that if Bergeron takes the ice before Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, he'd be in the lineup.

“He’s feeling pretty good,” Julien said. “Again, not totally up to the coach to make the final decision. I think a lot of other things have to happen and again, I can only give you the same answer I gave you the other day. If he’s in the warm-up, it’s because he’s ready to go.”

With Bergeron back, veteran forward Shawn Thornton, who played the fewest minutes (4:46) among any forwards in Game 3, was scratched. Rookie Tyler Seguin had three goals and three assists after he took over Bergeron's spot in the roster for the first two games of the series. 

“Everybody wants to play,” Julien said. “I think what has to happen is he needs to understand. And whoever that may be, it’s about the team right now and through a long series you see changes all the time.”

Bergeron appears set to return for Game 3

It is a really tough call but I would agree Thornton would be the one to sit. He works his butt off and is a great guy but cant score like Seguin has to and lets face it, they do not need a tough guy right now. I had a friend tell me they should sit Paille and I had to laugh, yhat guy has done some great work, especially when shorthanded. I thought they may even sit Chris Kelly since he was almost non-existent in game 2 but he is too good to sit. Well whoever sits they need Sguin in there and they need him to work like hell at both ends of the ice. He has it all and I want to see the kid succeed.

Thornton would be the obvious choice but doesn't it seem like you get 12 minutes of hustle out of him in only 4-5 minutes of ice time?
