No decision on Bergeron yet for Game 3

TAMPA -- The Boston Bruins have not made a decision whether or not Patrice Bergeron (concussion) will return to the lineup for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Tampa Bay Lightning Thursday night at St. Pete Times Forum.

Bergeron did participate in the team's game-day skate Thursday morning.

He's feeling pretty good," coach Claude Julien said. "It's not totally up to the coach to make the final decision. A lot of other things have to happen. I can only give you the same answer as the other day: If he's in the [pregame] warmup it's because he's ready to go."

Bergeron suffered a mild concussion in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Philadelphia Flyers on May 4 and did not play in the first two games of the Eastern Conference finals.

A team source earlier in the week said he expected Bergeron to be ready to play in Game 3.
