On Wednesday morning, he was able to participate in a skate prior to the team's practice. However, there is still no timetable for when he potentially could return.
The absence of Bergeron is a considerable hole for the Bruins. Acting as their top-center -- as well as their best face-off man -- it's basically impossible for the team to fill his void with a single player.
Bergeron leads all Boston forwards in total ice-time (19:14) and claims ownership to the best face-off winning percentage in the league (61.5 percent). In addition, he logs a considerable amount of time on the power play (2:07 average per game) and penalty killing (2:12 average) units.
Fortunately, Boston is one point back of the Northeast Division lead and has a six-point cushion (with a game in hand) as the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference. In essence, the playoffs are a virtual certainty.
This means there will be no rush for Bergeron to return to the lineup. Short of potentially wanting him to play in a few regular-season games to get his legs back under him, the only goal he and the team should have is getting him back in time for the postseason.
