WILMINGTON, Mass. — Bruins center Patrice Bergeron did not practice today at Ristuccia Arena.
He was the only player missing, as Jordan Caron filled in on Bergeron’s line with Rich Peverley moving over the center.
Bergeron has been battling through an injury from Game 5 Saturday that forced him to leave for a time during the second period. He played in Game 6 Sunday but only took one third-period faceoff. The Bruins have not revealed Bergeron’s injury.
Shawn Thornton, a healthy scratch for Game 6, was back in his rightful place alongside Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille.
Rookie defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk, who took the warmup in Washington Sunday, practiced as well. Bodnarchuk skated on a pair Joe Corvo, which might indicate the Bruins will use a Greg Zanon-Mike Mottau third pair in Game 7.
