WASHINGTON -- Bruins coach Claude Julien did not indicate Sunday whether Patrice Bergeron and Joe Corvo will be in the team's lineup for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Capitals, but he did say the two will take the ice for warmups.
Both players left Saturday's 4-3 loss due to injury, as Corvo was hurt blocking a shot in the second period and Bergeron left the game in the third period with an undisclosed injury.
Both Jordan Caron and Mike Mottau will also take warmups for the B's, as will blueliner Andrew Bodnarchuk.

WASHINGTON -- The Bruins' best forward will at the very least be at Game 6 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.
Patrice Bergeron, who left Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals in the third period, was spotted by multiple reporters as he entered the Verizon Center by himself before noon. He could be early to undergo treatment or to be examined by team doctors.
Bergeron, who led the NHL with a plus-36 rating in the regular season, took only three shifts in the third period Saturday. After the game, coach Claude Julien did not indicate how Bergeron suffered the injury or what the injury was, but Bergeron could have been hurt on a third-period hit he took from Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin.

Red Sox GM Ben Cherington suggested that he is "very satisfied" with the performance of manager Bobby Valentine, and suggested that the 4-10 start of the Red Sox' season more directly reflects on the players on the roster and Cherington's own role in assembling that talent.
"He makes the lineup out and he makes decisions during the game as to who's coming in," said Cherington. "The players will always, the players will always influence wins and losses more than anybody else. And that's no different here. He's doing the best he can with the roster he has. It'll get better, and he knows that and I know that and along the way if changes need to be made on the roster that's my responsibility."
After the game, Cherington and Valentine were joined in the manager's office by principal owner John Henry and CEO/president Larry Lucchino. The purpose, Cherington said, was to underscore the shared nature of the situation...
If there is a game on Sunday night beyond the Red Sox and Yankees, Daniel Bard will be the starter. Beyond that, however, Red Sox GM Ben Cherington said that the Red Sox have to consider all options to address a pitching staff that has performed woefully this year.
The Sox are currently 4-10 with a 6.68 ERA, and the team's bullpen has been particularly dreadful. With closer Andrew Bailey having been lost on the doorstep to the season, Mark Melancon having pitched his way down to Triple-A and closer Alfredo Aceves struggling to a 24.00 ERA in his role, the Sox decision makers, Cherington said, will sleep on Saturday's 15-9 loss -- in which the bullpen allowed 14 runs -- before any role changes.
"Bard’s starting tomorrow night, so that’s where that is," said Cherington. "I think when the pitching staff is not performing and you’re 4-10, you’ve got to find ways to get better. The reality of it is that when you...
