Bergeron

Bergeron

WILMINGTON,  Mass.  — Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron skated this morning — it’s believed for the first time since his Dec. 20 concussion — prior to his teammates taking the ice for their full practice at Ristuccia Arena.

I’ll have more details on Bergeron’s workout later today.

The entire squad that played Saturday is on the ice right now, plus defenseman Shane Hnidy, who has missed the last two games with a severely swollen left eye. Hnidy had practiced last Friday in a red non-contact jersey, but today he is in a regular black defenseman’s jersey.

The offensive lines are the same from Saturday, and rookie Kevin Regan is one of the two goaltenders along with Tim Thomas. There is no sign of Milan Lucic, who has been out with an undisclosed injury.
