Patrice Bergeron absent from Bruins practice

WILMINGTON — The Bruins took the ice at Ristuccia Arena Tuesday for what may be their last practice of the season. All players were present with the exception 0f Patrice Bergeron [1] and Adam McQuaid, the latter of whom remains out after not practicing yet this postseason.
