Came here looking for an update on Bergy. And as crappy as it is I am very happy to see this!
Patrice Bergeron might have been a late scratch for Game 4 of the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs, but there's a chance that Bruins center might be back in the lineup on Saturday.
Speaking after the Bruins' 3-1 win over the Maple Leafs Thursday, Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy noted that Bergeron's upper-body injury has been an issue that he has been dealing with for some time, adding that there's a chance his top-line center might be good to go for Game 5 at TD Garden.

Sounds like it's not a concussion?
Seems like he had the same issue earlier in the year where he wasn’t shooting the puck with anything on it,than he seemed to get it back.Lets hope he is back Saturday,they need to put the Leafs away ,than have a few days of for rest.
He definitely did not look his best in Game 3.
I heard on TSN radio this morning that watching him come into the Gardens, they could see what appeared to be dressing/bandages on his left arm - through his suit. If anyone can watch HNIC and see the opening - there should be a shot of him arriving at the arena. Focus on his left arm..... I missed that and did not record the game.
Only footage I saw he had his jacket draped over that arm when he came in,announcers speculated that maybe he was hiding that arm or wrist.
He looks pretty good in that clip.
At least is not a concussion, uff..
Ya he wouldn't be on the ice for a concussion.
Fwiw if he wasn't going to play, I'd be saying "there's still a decent chance he plays". And if he was going to play, I'd be saying "we hope he does but right now it doesn't look good".
It's the playoffs. Believe nothing. Give Babcock nothing.
Unless he did regular stickwork, I wouldn't read too much into a skate for an upper body injury. Probably more conditioning than anything, although that's better than not skating at all, I suppose.
At least they narrowed it down to half a body instead of a "body injury"
He will be a game time decision tomorrow. Keep Babcock guessing.
I'm guessing we don't see St Patrice tomorrow night. hope I'm wrong.
Seems like more of a precautionary decision to me, similar to Grz's injury the other night.
I would hold bergy out. Let him heal for the second round.
Not knowing anything, I kind of agree. However, if we go back to Toronto 3-2 anything can happen.
I know that I’m pulling hard for NJ to stretch the TB series. Wish Kucherov has gotten a game.
I say let’s leave it to the decision makers (medical staff & Cassidy). This serie is not over yet.
that quote has me "thinking" that it`s likely not a concussion issue. Can`t see the B`s Dr`s just letting Bergy play on with previous history....that`s what I`ll cling to
Yep- if it’s 3-2 he goes back in. I’d love to see NJ extend the series.
It is an issue with his arm, he was nursing it when walking into the rink last night
More head games from Cassidy
Um, that's upper body games.
Jesus c.... they see through clothes .
