Bergeron, McQuaid will be game-time decisions for Bruins


Patrice Bergeron and Adam McQuaid are both “game-time decisions” for the Bruins tonight in Columbus.

About Bergeron (who’s missed the past two games with an ankle injury), Boston coach Claude Julien told the club’s website: “We’ve got to go through the medical staff first and see if he’s good, and No. 2, if there’s a risk attached to it, so we’ll make that decision here as we move along today.”

As for McQuaid (who’s been out with a concussion since Jan. 5), Julien said the big defenseman had a “minor, minor, minor setback” Monday, but “looks good today.”

The B’s would welcome either back, preferably both. Sunday in Detroit, the Bruins lost 6-5, marking the sixth time this season they’d surrendered six goals or more in a loss.


Boston has activated McQuaid off injured reserve and, to get down to the 23-man limit, assigned d-man Colin Miller to AHL Providence.

Miller was the only d-man on the roster that did not require waivers to be sent down.
