WILMINGTON --Patrice Bergeron wasn't with the Bruins for Friday's practice becauseof "personal reasons," according to coach Claude Julien, and he won'tbe with the team on Saturday night when they play the PittsburghPenguins, either.

Julien said the Bruins won't makea callup. Instead, Tyler Seguin will return to the lineup and willskate on a line with Michael Ryder and ChrisKelly.

Kelly and Ryder's usual linemate as of late,Rich Peverley, practiced in Bergeron's usual spot on Friday with BradMarchand and Mark Recchi. Julien said he was going to at least beginSaturday night's game with those lines.
