Bergeron may return for Game 3

TAMPA, Fla. -- Coach Claude Julien said Wednesday that Patrice Bergeron, who has missed the first two games of the Bruins' series against Tampa Bay because of a "mild concussion" suffered at the end of the series against the Flyers, will be back on the ice Thursday and may be able to play in Game 3 against the Lightning.The B's coach said barring any setbacks that Bergeron should be past all medical protocol andbe fully cleared by the medical staff on Thursday morning at the St Pete Times Forum, and that it will essentially be up to the coaches whether the 25-year-old two-way center is ready to go. Julien also said he expects that Bergeron will be ready for full-time duty in all of his roles on the ice once he does jump into the Eastern Conference Finals.

"I have a feeling there will be discussions on if he'll be ready," said Julien.
