Bruins’ Kelly (broken tibia) skates again

5 Comments

Boston Bruins forward Chris Kelly skated again on Wednesday, and a return to the lineup might not be far off, although nothing has been set or confirmed.

Kelly suffered a broken tibia on a knee-on-knee hit from Ottawa Senators forward Chris Neil on Mar. 12 and hasn’t played since.

While there was something positive to take from the Kelly update, the Bruins did get bad news Wednesday.

Center Patrice Bergeron has a concussion, the club announced on Wednesday.

“I talked to him about an hour ago and he was in very good spirits. He was out walking,” Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli told reporters in Boston.

“He was annoyed at it, and he was emotional (Tuesday) night. I asked him if I could update the media and he said, ‘Sure.’ . . . He sounded really good and I told him that we’ll work together in getting him back.”
