Patrice Bergeron Is "Day-to-Day"

Steve Babineau/NHLI via Getty Images(BOSTON) -- Some hopeful news for Boston Bruins fans.

Center Patrice Bergeron, who was injured and sent to a Chicago area hospital with a undisclosed body injury during Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final Saturday, is said to be "day-to-day," according to Bruins head coach Claude Julien.

Boston is currently trailing the Chicago Blackhawks in the Cup Final three games to two.

Game 6 is Monday night in Boston and having Bergeron would be a big boost.

Bergeron has tallied 15 points this postseason, including two game-winning goals. He also continues to be one of the most successful face-off men in the NHL.

"He does everything right, basically," Linemate Brad Marchand said. "He's such a great face-off guy and it really gives us the opportunity to start with the puck a lot. He's very tough to play against defensively, and he's been doing a very good job at playing against their top guys."
