The Boston Bruins will have a key player back for Game 3 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. According to Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, Patrice Bergeron will be back in the lineup on Thursday night, just 13 days after suffering a concussion in Game 4 against Philadelphia.
"He looked pretty good today," the source said.
Bergeron went through his usual pregame routine this morning. Bergeron should take his usual spot between Brad Marchand and Mark Recchi and see ice time in all situations.
Does it seem like a quick turnaround from "Concussion-prone player suffers another" to "Patrice Bergeron in for Game 3"?
Yes, it does. Hopefully Bergeron is 100 percent and can be a full, contributing player for the Bruins on the ice on Thursday night. With him, the Bruins are a much better team at both ends of the ice than they are without him.
