Bergeron/By S. Bradley

WILMINGTON, Mass. — Bruins center Patrice Bergeron left practice early today after he took a Johnny Boychuk chip up the wall off his chin.

Bergeron was taken to the hospital for stitches and precautionary X-rays.

Meanwhile, fellow center David Krejci said he received a few new sticks from Bauer to tide him over. The company wasn’t too happy he went public with his complaints after Saturday’s loss to San Jose, but in the end Krejci’s voiced displeasure benefited him.

Here’s how the lines looked for practice, including the newly recalled Jordan Caron.


All seven D and both goaltenders were also on the ice.
