Before last night’s game was postponed, it looked like Patrice Bergeron was going to make his return, though he planned to meet again with the medical and coaching staffs to make a final decision.

Bergeron has not played since suffering the fourth concussion of his career on April 2.

“I’m cleared. Even for Carolina (on Saturday) I was cleared,” Bergeron said after yesterday’s morning skate. “We’ve got to talk to the doctors but also especially with (coach Claude Julien). It’s not up to me, obviously. But I’m feeling good, so I feel like I’m ready, but we’ll see.”

Bergeron said that he hasn’t experienced concussion symptoms since the day after he took an inadvertent elbow to the side of the head from Ottawa’s Colin Greening.

“I’m feeling good,” Bergeron said. “It’s almost two weeks now and it was only the day after that I felt it, so it’s been a while that I’ve felt good and felt like myself, so I feel like I’ve taken my time. But like I’ve said, it’s not up to me and they’ve always done a good job of taking care of me and I really appreciate it. But if it was up to me, I feel ready.”

Bergeron has been skating for a handful of days.

“Obviously I want to get out there,” he said. “I feel good, I feel confident. And I don’t feel that cautious, either. We’re taking the time and there’s a reason for that, so that I’m not hesitant. And I feel good.”

Julien said that the team is going to be as careful as it can be.

“Just making sure we’re all on the same page here,” Julien said of consulting the medical staff again before Bergeron gets the final go-ahead. “He’s been feeling a lot better for the last few days and seems to be doing extremely well. But when you’ve been through what Patrice has been through, we’re going to be extra safe with him. And if it takes a little extra time, we’re willing to do that.”
