Claude Julien: Bruins ‘optimistic’ about Patrice Bergeron

Bruins coach Claude Julien [1] has been asked about the status of Patrice Bergeron [2] ever since the 25-year-old went down with a concussion in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, and he has yet to offer any update aside from that Bergeron is feeling better. Friday was no different, though Julien did share a laugh with the media.

“Well I think, I don’€™t know if you guys share a conference before I get here and say who’€™s asking the question today, but I am getting that question asked everyday,” Julien said. “I think he’€™s improving — he really is improving. We’€™re optimistic about him. As Peter [Chiarelli] said, we knew he was going to miss the start of the series and how much he is going to miss, I can’€™t tell you right now. But he is on the right track and we’€™re staying positive.

“Again, I say that every day. I’€™m not going to say much more because when it comes to concussions you have good news and you have setbacks and you have all kinds of things that can happen. I’€™m not going to stand here and change my tune every day except to tell you that right now that’€™s going in the right direction.”

Through 11 games, Bergeron leads the B’s with 12 points this postseason. Julien offered on Thursday that the center had not been doing any sort of workouts.
