The Boston Bruins could have captain Patrice Bergeron back in the lineup on Wednesday when they play host to the Florida Panthers in Game 5.

Bergeron has not played in the series after aggravating an upper-body concern in the final regular season game in Montreal.

He is expected to be back at Boston’s workout on Tuesday.

“We’re fortunate (Bergeron) will join us for practice,” said Boston GM Don Sweeney per Boston Hockey Now. “Then we’ll gauge his progression and go from there. As everybody knows, it’s day to day and we’ll see how he is when he integrates into other guys on the ice besides just himself.”

The news is not as good for David Krejci who missed the two games in South Florida and will not practice today.

Even with Boston missing two of their top centers, the Panthers have not been able to take advantage.

The Florida Panthers have dug themselves into another deep hole, but this time, their season will come to an end with another loss.

A number of teams have rallied from being down 3-1 in series before — the Rangers did it last year — and the Panthers would like to join the club.
