Bergeron/By S. Bradley

WILMINGTON, Mass. — After missing last Friday’s practice and Saturday’s game with Pittsburgh because of a personal matter, Patrice Bergeron returned to the Bruins today.


About 15 minutes before the start of full practice at Ristuccia Arena, Bergeron joined nine of his teammates on the ice for some power-play work, including break-in plays. The Bruins haven’t scored a man-advantage goal since Feb. 18, a stretch of six games (0-for-12).

Bergeron’s unit also featured Dennis Seidenberg Rich Peverley, Michael Ryder and Johnny Boychuk. The other group was Zdeno Chara, Tomas Kaberle, Milan Lucic, David Krejci and Nathan Horton.
