BOSTON (CBS/AP) — Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron is back in Boston and is listed as “day-to-day.”

Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli issued the following update Sunday morning:

Patrice was discharged from the hospital Saturday night and will be flying home with the team this morning.

After returning to Boston, coach Claude Julien said Bergeron is day-to-day and that is “good news to him.”

Julien said he hopes his star center will be able to play in Game 6 on Monday night.

Asked if it was an upper or lower body injury, Julien said, “body.”
