Bergeron takes warmup, will play
By: DJ Bean

TAMPA -- Bruins center Patrice Bergeron took the ice for warmups Thursday night, indicating he will return to the Bruins' lineup for the first time since suffering a concussion in Game 4 of the conference semifinals. 

"If you see him out there in the warmup tonight, I'm not just sending him out there for a skate," coach Claude Julien said after the team's morning skate. "He's going to be playing." 

Bergeron skated with his usual line of Brad Marchand and Mark Recchi in the warmup. Rich Peverley skated on the fourth line with Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille, a sign that Shawn Thornton will be a healthy scratch. In 11 games this postseason, Bergeron has two goals and 10 assists for 12 points.

Sox, Cubs to 'turn back clock' for Sat. game

The Red Sox announced Thursday that they will “turn back the clock” for their game Saturday against the Cubs to mark 93 years since the clubs’ last matchup at Fenway Park. Both the Red Sox and Cubs will wear uniforms that replicate the style worn in 1918, the last time these two teams faced each other in Boston. There are also plans for additional elements of the Saturday pre-game ceremony and game presentation that will be reminiscent of the fans’ experience in 1918.
 
The Red Sox and Cubs last played at Fenway Park on Sept. 11, 1918, in the sixth and final game of that year’s World Series. Concluding a season that was abbreviated because of the ongoing World War I conflict, the Red Sox won two of the series’ first three games in Chicago. Boston returned home to take Game Four, before the Cubs staved off elimination in Game Five. The Red Sox then closed out the series in Game Six with a 2-1 victory, clinching...

Lineup: Drew returns to right vs. Verlander

With the Tigers throwing out right-handed ace Justin Verlander in their last game at Fenway Park this season, the Red Sox will counter by returning left-handed bat J.D. Drew to right field and his usual sixth spot in the batting order. Shortstop Jed Lowrie moves back down to seventh to make room for Drew. Jason Varitek will hit ninth and catch Boston starter Josh Beckett, who comes in with a 2-0 record and 0.34 ERA in four starts at Fenway this year. The Red Sox captain has caught all but one of Beckett's starts thus far in 2011. 

Here's how the rest of the lineup fills out for Thursday night's game:

RED SOX

Jacoby Ellsbury CF

Dustin Pedroia 2B

Adrian Gonzalez 1B

Kevin Youkilis 3B

David Ortiz DH

J.D. Drew RF

Jed Lowrie SS

Carl Crawford LF

Jason Varitek C

Report: Bergeron to play in Game 3

TAMPA -- Bruins center Patrice Bergeron will play in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Lightning after missing the first two games with a mild concussion, according to a report by ESPN.

Bergeron, who suffered the mild concussion on a hit from Philadelphia's Claude Giroux in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, participated in the team's morning skate Thursday at St. Pete Times Forum, doing drills and taking faceoffs as the B's prepare for Game 3 with the series tied, 1-1. Coach Claude Julien said that Bergeron is "feeling pretty good" and is "getting real close," but said that a decision on whether Bergeron is ready for game action will be made either Thursday or Friday.

"He's still day-to-day," Julien said. "Until I'm told that he's cleared -- he obviously had to skate this morning, and we had to see...

Lucic will play after missing AM skate
By: DJ Bean

TAMPA -- Bruins forward Milan Lucic was not on the ice for Thursday's morning skate at St. Pete Times Forum, marking his second straight absence from a morning skate after getting hit on the right foot by a Tyler Seguin shot. Despite whatever discomfort Lucic may be feeling, coach Claude Julien confirmed after the skate that the team's regular-season leader in goals will be in the lineup Thursday night vs. the Lightning. 

"There's no issues," Julien said of Lucic. "He's going to be in tonight. During the playoffs, there's certain things you do, and you give guys time off for whatever reason. He's going to be in there, and there won't be any excuses to his game at all. … There's very minor issues when it comes to that." 

Mark Recchi did skate for the B's, marking the first time this postseason that the 43-year-old has not taken his option to have the morning off.
