Bergeron/By S. Bradley

BOSTON — Several media members spotted Patrice Bergeron hanging around the TD Garden today as his teammates took the ice for practice.

After the on-ice session, head coach Claude Julien acknowledged the visit by the veteran center, who is currently out with a mild concussion suffered last Friday in Game 4 of the Philadelphia series.

Bergeron is still expected to miss the start of the Eastern Conference Final series that begins Saturday.

“[He’s] doing better. He’s here, he’s doing better,” said Julien. “So again, he’s dealing with the concussion symptoms and everything else, the protocol of it. And he’s here today because he’s feeling better. And if anything, yeah we’re getting some positive feedback from him.”
