Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron skated for the first time since suffering a concussion in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Philadelphia Flyers before the Bruins' morning skate on Saturday.
"He went out and just had a light skate this morning," coach Claude Julien said following the team's morning skate in anticipation of Game 1 of the conference finals vs. the Lightning. "That's where he's at now, just a light skate on his own.
"This is something that's just protocol, that he's going through the normal stuff," the coach added. "Today was a light skate on his own, and he just got off the ice when we went on. I don't think there's much more that we can give you except that it can go either way. We're certainly not going to comment on that kind of stuff and just hope that he keeps getting better."

Bergeron didn't score a goal but had five assists and eight assists in the series against Philadelphia. Bergeron scored 22 goals and 35 assists in 80 regular season games.
