Patrice Bergeron provides critical health update

Will the Bruins captain play in Game 5?



The Boston Bruins have been without the services of captain Patrice Bergeron for the entire 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs so far, though the good news is that they have a commanding 3-1 lead over the Florida Panthers heading into Game 5 in Boston. 

The longtime veteran Bruins forward has been practicing and working towards a return to action, and it was said by head coach Jim Montgomery that it would be "likely" for him to return at some point in the series. Following practice this morning at the team training facility, Bergeron provided a key update on his health - and all signs point to him playing tomorrow night. 

"Feeling's a good day," he said. "We'll see tomorrow how I feel. I'm not anticipating any setbacks. So far, so good."

The Bruins take on the Panthers tomorrow night at TD Garden and can punch their ticket to the second round with a victory.
