BOSTON – Patrice Bergeron was in the lineup for the Bruins after skating through  warm-ups for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals and going through all of the usual pregame routine, including centering his line between Brad Marchand and Jaromir Jagr.

Bergeron left the ice a bit early in warm-ups. The early exit could have been to receive additional treatment prior to the puck drop for Game 6, but Bergeron did look good enough to potentially give it everything he’s got.

Bergeron sustained an upspecified “body injury” that knocked him out of Game 5 after six minutes of ice time. He was taken to the hosptial in an ambulance during that game. The injury also seemed to compromise his ability to back-check against the Blackhawks in a Game 4 loss at TD Garden.

The Bruins also appeared to have kept the defensemen tandem of Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg together according to pregame warm-ups, asthey took all the line rushes together. Here are the Boston line combos and D-pairings based on pregame warm-up:

Lucic-Krejci-Horton
Marchand-Bergeron-Jagr
Paille-Kelly-Seguin
Soderberg-Peverley-Thornton

Chara-Seidenberg
Ference-Boychuk
Krug-McQuaid
