Patrice Bergeron is close to returning to action after suffering his fourth concussion in his career. Bruins fans say his return can't come soon enough.

Back to back losses to the NY Islanders and the Carolina Hurricanes have kept the B's in second place in the division, one point behind Montreal. The team is 3-3 since Bergeron has been out of the lineup.

He has participated in practices over the weekend and he has been cleared for contact.

The Bruins play Ottawa Monday night. You will hear that game live on Sportsradio 92.9TheTicket with coverage beginning at 6:30PM.
