Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron left Game 5 on Saturday to go to the hospital and while he has since been released, his availability for tonight’s game is in doubt.

Adding to that is the fact that Bergeron wasn’t present for Boston’s Monday morning skate, according to writer Dan Rosen. Carl Soderberg has taken his place on a line with Jaromir Jagr and Brad Marchand.

It’s not clear what Bergeron is dealing with and Bruins coach Claude Julien isn’t in the mood to provide information on the subject deep into the Stanley Cup Final.

“He’s day-to-day,” Julien said yesterday. “Isn’t that good enough? Day-to-day. [It’s] a body injury.”

It’s worth noting that Bergeron might still play tonight even after missing this practice.

To use a recent example, Chicago’s Marian Hossa has been skipping practices due to an upper-body injury, but he still played in the Blackhawks’ last two games.

    I hope he’s healthy enough to play. If not, then I hope he doesn’t push it because it’s the cup – it’s not worth it if he has a life-threatening injury.

    I am a Hawks fan and a big fan of Bergeron. It is sad but it is hockey. Maybe Tony Amonte the man that has never been to a Cup final will call him out like he did Hossa. He lost lots of respect here in Chicago

    A body injury huh? Is there another kind? I hope he’s able to play, only if it doesn’t screw him up long term.

      Blows to the ego when a healthy scratch, but that isn’t a factor here.

    is taking one to the nads considered a body injury?

      Why wouldn’t it be? Do you carry yours in your pocket or something? :)

        a pocket of sorts, yes. more like a sack. a nadsack. but see, they kinda hang off my body, so I wasn’t sure….
