Patrice Bergeron took part in a limited morning skate Thursday at TD Garden, marking the first time he’s been spotted on the ice since leaving last Tuesday’s game against the Senators with a concussion. Bergeron skated with Adam McQuaid, Wade Redden, Kaspars Daugavins, Jay Pandolfo and Aaron Johnson.
As for Brad Marchand, Claude Julien told reporters that the left winger still was being evaluated after taking an elbow to the head from Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov. Marchand left Wednesday’s game following the elbow and did not return.
Julien did say that he feels McQuaid is “ready” to return to Boston’s lineup, and that he will likely do so Thursday against the Islanders. McQuaid has missed the last 11 games with a shoulder strain.
