Blackhawks optimistic about Toews, Bruins call Bergeron day-to-day for Game 6

  • Print

CHICAGO - Patrice Bergeron may or may not be available for the Boston Bruins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup final, but Claude Julien is keeping that a secret. Jonathan Toews' status for the Chicago Blackhawks might be a little clearer.

Julien called Bergeron day-to-day with a "body" injury and added that his status was "really good news." Julien was short on details other than that. He said he did not know if Bergeron would skate Monday.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said Toews was feeling much better after leaving Game 5 on Saturday night with an upper-body injury. Quenneville said the team was "optimistic" the 25-year-old captain would be able to play Monday night.

Bergeron left Game 5's 3-1 loss to the Blackhawks after skating just two shifts in the second period.

Toews took a hit to the head from Boston defenceman Johnny Boychuk and did not play in the third period.

The centres have arguably been the most influential skaters in the series. Bergeron has nine goals and six assists in 21 playoff games, while Toews has two goals and 10 assists in 22 games.
