Chicago Blackhawks captain Patrick Toews and Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron — who both missed time in Game 5 because of injury — were back in the lineup for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final at TD Garden on Monday.
The Blackhawks lead the best-of-seven series 3-2 and could clinch their second Cup in four years with a victory.
Toews was on the bench for the third period of Game 5 on Saturday, a contest the ‘Hakws won 3-1. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said Toews had an upper-body injury.
Bergeron, who is the Bruins’ top scorer (four goals) in the series, played only 6 minutes, 6 seconds of Game 5 before he was transported to a hospital for observation. The Bruins did not disclose the nature of the injury.
