Although Patrice Bergeron has been cleared by doctors and took his second morning skate with the Bruins Monday, no one would declare if the center would play against Ottawa in an evening contest at TD Garden.

Bergeron has missed six games with a concussion, but he said he stopped feeling symptoms after the first day.

“I know we’ve got to talk, I guess, to the doctors but also, especially, with [coach] Claude [Julien],” Bergeron said. “It’s not up to me, but I’ve been feeling good, so we’ll see.”

Brad Marchand joined his teammates on the ice for the first time and then revealed he skated on his own Sunday. He suffered his concussion last Wednesday, but could be close to a return. He’s not expected to play against the Senators.

Dougie Hamilton is expected to be back in the Bruins’ lineup after sitting out two games to rest.
