Boston Bruins Notes

-While head coach Jim M0ntgomery told the media on Wednesday morning that he’s a game-time decision, the Boston Bruins are expecting their captain Patrice Bergeron to return to the lineup tonight and play his first game since suffering an upper-body injury on April 13.

-Unfortunately, the team’s second line center, David Krejci will remain out of the lineup and miss his third-straight game with an upper-body injury.

-Boston Bruins winger Taylor Hall has caught fire in the last three games with four goals and three assists in his last three games. Hall now leads the team in playoff points with seven.

Florida Panthers Notes

-Florida Panthers are yet to name a starting goalie for Game 5. After allowing one goal on nine shots in a relief of Alex Lyon in Game 3, Sergei Bobrovsky allowed five goals on 30 shots in Game 4. Meanwhile Lyon has allowed six goals on 66 shots from the Bruins.

-With Aaron Ekblad out, North Reading, MA native and former Boston College defenseman Casey Fitzgerald is getting a shot on the Stanley Cup Playoffs stage. Fitzgerald had no points and was a minus 1 in Game 3, his first playoff game.
