Boston Bruins star center Patrice Bergeron will miss Game 4 of their series against the Toronto Maple Leafs with an upper body injury. The team says he's "day to day." His line with Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak dominated Games 1 and 2 against the Leafs, with Boston winning both. They were held without a point in Game 3.
