Bruins Daily: Bergeron Closer; Marchand; Tkachuk



Boston Bruins

Boston Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron is tracking to return for Game 5 on Wednesday as the Bruins look to close out the Florida Panthers.

That and more in your BHN Bruins Daily:

Boston Bruins

Boston Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron is slated to practice with his teammates today and is tracking to return to game action tomorrow night in Game 5. Unfortunately, the news on Monday wasn’t so great for fellow Bruins center David Krejci.

Florida Panthers winger Matthew Tkachuk was amazingly only fined ($5000), and not suspended for his gutless cross-check to a defenseless Garnet Hathaway in Game 4. He didn’t even receive any supplemental discipline for cowardly challenging Boston Bruins goalie Linus Ullmark.

Boston Bruins winger Brad Marchand has had enough of the hot mics between the benches and how they’re being used.

Florida Panthers

The Florida Panthers missed an opportunity to take advantage of a Boston Bruins team that was missing its top two centers in Bergeron and Krejci, for the last two games.

It’s win-or-go golfing for Florida Panthers captain Sasha Barkov and his teammates in Game 5 tomorrow night.
