SCFG6: Injury Updates
Jonathan Toews: Toews did skate this morning and said he felt 100%. Both he and Coach Joel Quenneville basically confirmed that he will play tonight in Game 6.
Marian Hossa: Hossa continues to sit out practice and skates, which he has done since missing Game 3 with an undisclosed upper-body injury. But just like Games 4 & 5 he is fully expected to play.
Patrice Bergeron: If it wasn't for all the mystery around Hossa missing Game 3 then Bergeron's injury would be the strangest thing to happen in these finals. He suffered some sort of "body" injury during Game 5 that caused him to miss all most all of the second period and leave the stadium during the third period in an ambulance.
There has been a lot of speculation but all that has been confirmed is Bergeron flew back to Boston with the Bruins and did not practice in this morning's skate.
Coach Claude Julien confirmed that Bergeron will be on the ice for warmups. However, Jay Pandolfo and Jordan Caron will also be on the ice just incase Bergeron is unable to play.
Just as in Game 5 it is expected that Carl Sodenburg will center the second line if he is unable to play.
