WILMINGTON, Mass. — Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien confirmed today after practice at Ristuccia Arena that center Patrice Bergeron is still at home following the concussion he suffered Dec. 20 vs. Carolina.
“I know for a fact today was better than yesterday,” Julien said about Bergeron, who has been out of the line-up since his collision with Hurricanes defenseman Dennis Seidenberg.
Julien said that there’s still no timetable for a Bergeron return.
•In other injury news, Petteri Nokelainen (upper body) will go on the road trip along with Aaron Ward (ankle). Meanwhile, Julien said that Marco Sturm’s knee might be ready for a better diagnosis from the doctors soon.
