Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe and Bruins radio analyst Bob Beers join Michael Felger on "Sports Sunday" to discuss the Bergeron injury and what The Bruins' Game 6 lineup might look like.

What are the chances Bergeron, who left Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Saturday night in an ambulance but returned with the team Sunday from Chicago, does play? Felger asked Dupont.

"Decent," said Dupont. "The fact that he wasn't held overnight. I've been told it's not a [ruptured] spleen. If there's no internal injury and it's a rib or something, he plays."

Said Beers: "The fact that they dressed Carl Soderberg makes more sense now if it [the Bergeron injury] was pre-existing.

Felger said it appeared Bergeron could have been hurt in Game 4 because he wasn't back-checking as strong as he usually does.

"A lot of people weren't back-checking in that game [a 6-5 Bruins' loss to the Blackhawks]," Beers said.

So, if Bergeron can't go? What does coach Claude Julien do with his lines?

"I think you'll see a bunch of different combinations," Beers said.

Dupont agreed: "Other than the first line, everything is in play," he said.
