WILMINGTON, Mass. — It’s safe for Bruins backers to exhale.

Center Patrice Bergeron, who did not practice Monday because of the after-effects of a blocked shot Saturday, returned to practice with his teammates this morning at Ristuccia Arena. Bergeron centered his usual line with Marco Sturm and Mark Recchi on the wings.

Defenseman Matt Hunwick also returned after a “maintenance day.” So the Bruins had a full squad on the ice.
