Patrice Bergeron is unlikely to play in Saturday's game against Arizona.

"He’s out there skating, so that’s a good sign," said head coach Bruce Cassidy. "Obviously, without being able to participate in practice, you need one of those good practices before you play. He’ll be updated again (today). It doesn’t look like he’ll be in (tonight), but I don’t want to get ahead of myself. He could get up in the morning, come in and skate and pronounce himself ready. A guy like him would get the benefit of the doubt."

We'll have a better idea in the morning." If Bergeron is unable to play against Nashville then Ryan Spooner could take his place on the top line.

Patrice Bergeron is confident going into 2017-18 because his injury woes from last year are behind him.

Bergeron played through ankle and sports hernia issues last season, while posting 21 goals and 32 assists in 79 games. "It was hard that way and it was in my head a little bit. Once I got past that hurdle of realizing it was going to be there, and not worrying about it, I felt better," he said. "It's not an excuse for the slow start I had and not scoring on some easy chances, but it was slowing me down a bit. It was definitely annoying. Once I passed the hurdle of knowing that my skating was going to be restricted, I felt better confidence-wise and whatnot. I stopped second-guessing everything that I was doing on the ice."

There's still some restriction there that we have to work on, but overall, I feel pretty good. I feel good on the ice, I feel good in the gym. We still have to definitely do some treatments, but definitely I feel good and I know I'll be ready for camp." Bergeron won his fourth Frank. J. Selke Trophy as the league's top defensive forward last season. He had 21 goals and 53 points in 79 games in 2016-17.
