There was no real update on Patrice Bergeron as Bruins coach Claude Julien said today that Bergeron is day-to-day and it's possible that he will play in Game 6 on Monday.

The Bruins flew back to Boston Sunday in preparation for a do-or-die Game Six Monday night at TD Garden - and Patrice Bergeron was with the team.

According to B's Head Coach Claude Julien, the alternate captain is "day-to-day," meaning he could be a possibility to play Monday night against Chicago.

"Day-to-day is really good news to me, anyways," said Julien, before gesturing to media spanned out in front of him during his off-day press conference. "Should be to you guys."

After only playing two short shifts in the second period of Saturday night's Game 5, 3-1 loss to the Hawks, Bergeron did not play for the rest of the game Saturday night and was transported to a local hospital for observation. He was discharged that night, before flying with his teammates. Specifics of the injury are respectfully staying under wraps.


With Bergeron considered day-to-day, Coach Julien has to consider his options heading into Game 6.

"I don't know if he'll skate tomorrow. He may, and that's what day-to-day is. Again, I'm trying to be as clear as I can here," said Julien, of Bergeron's status.
