BOSTON One day after Patrice Bergeron checked in with the Bruins at TD Garden, Bruins coach Claude Julien said there was nothing new to update when asked if thered been some kind of abatement in symptoms or a step forward in the healing process.Bergeron has been out since last Friday nights Game Four against the Flyers with a mild concussion as termed by the Bruins medical staff, and the Bs coach said there wasnt any more that he could share about his centers condition.I would say we are still on the same course with Bergeron as what it would normally be, said Julien. I dont think there is any more that I could share with you today that is going to change what I shared with you yesterday.Bergeron has already been ruled out to start the series opening Saturday night against the Tampa Bay Lighting, and the Bruins are correctly approaching the situation as if the two-way center and Conn Smythe candidate wont play at all in the series after potting 12 points in 11 playoff games through the first two rounds. The 25-year-old center has experienced three concussions in 3 years, and must go at least seven straight days without concussion symptoms before he can start working out in earnest for a return to the postseason.
