Berg­eron miss­ing from Bru­ins prac­tice, listed as day to day

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

BOS­TON — The Bos­ton Bru­ins are hope­ful they won’t be miss­ing one of their top scor­ers when they open a cru­cial four-game home­s­tand against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Satur­day. Cen­ter Pa­trice Berg­eron didn’t prac­tise Fri­day be­cause of a lower-body in­jury suf­fered Wed­nes­day in a 5-3 loss at Wash­ing­ton. Berg­eron, who is fifth on the Bru­ins with 26 points (12 goals, 14 as­sists), played two more shifts be­fore leav­ing the game for good. Gen­eral man­ager Don Sweeney clas­si­fied Berg­eron as day to day. Coach Claude Julien wouldn’t rule out Berg­eron against the Maple Leafs. The Bru­ins also prac­ticed without goal­tender Tuukka Rask, who said he popped his groin on Wed­nes­day. Sweeney said Rask was tak­ing a ``main­te­nance day,’’ and Julien said he ex­pected Rask to make his 12th straight start on Satur­day.
