Bergeron sits out practice

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron (upper-body injury) was the only player to miss practice Tuesday at Ristuccia Arena, but afterward coach Claude Julien made it clear the team’s assistant captain will be in the lineup for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the Washington Capitals on Wednesday at TD Garden.

Bergeron suffered the injury in Game 5. He played the entire Game 6, but was moved to the wing because he was not 100 percent healthy enough to handle faceoffs.

“He played last game and he’s playing next game,” Julien said. “I don’t know how much clearer I can get -- he’s playing.”
