Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron skated at practice Monday, but his status for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against Tampa Bay is still unknown as he continues to recover from a mild concussion.

Bergeron was hurt during Game 4 of the East semifinals against Philadelphia on Friday, May 6 and sat out the opener of the conference finals this past Saturday. The Bruins lost Game 1 at home, 5-2, and will host Game 2 on Tuesday night.

"There's a protocol we're going through, a process he has to go through," said Bruins head coach Claude Julien on Monday. "We've seen him skate now for a few days, but there's nothing else to report in regards to him."

Bergeron is Boston's leading playoff scorer with 12 points in 11 games, having notched two goals and 10 assists. He was the team's third-leading scorer during the regular season with 57 points in 80 games.
