TAMPA Patrice Bergeron hopped onto the ice with the rest of his Bruins teammates, and will be in the lineup for Boston in Game Three against the Tampa Bay Lightning at TD Garden. The 25-year-old center missed a pair of playoff games with a mild concussion suffered in Game Four against the Flyers on their way to a sweep, but skated in five of the last six days leading up to his return.According to several hockey sources, Bergeron passed all team protocol and was given medical clearance by noted Boston neurologist Dr. Robert Cantu before jumping back into game action.With Bergeron back centering Mark Recchi and Brad Marchand, Rich Peverley is expected to slide down to the wing with Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille on the fourth line for Thursday nights game.
