Patrice Bergeron is likely to return for Game 6, Claude Julien said.

Patrice Bergeron will participate in warmups before the Bruins play the Blackhawks in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night. And coach Claude Julien said he’s confident that Bergeron will play.

Bergeron didn’t participate in the team’s morning workout. He suffered an undisclosed injury in Game 5 on Saturday that required a visit to a Chicago hospital.

But Bergeron returned to Boston with his teammates Sunday morning.

Assuming Bergeron plays, he will most likely center Brad Marchand and Jaromir Jagr. The Bruins will then have to determine who plays left wing on the fourth line.

Carl Soderberg started in that position in Game 5 before moving up to No. 2 center following Bergeron’s exit. Jay Pandolfo took shifts on the fourth line with Rich Peverley and Shawn Thornton during the morning skate.

Defensemen Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg were paired together Monday morning. They were split after the second period of Game 5.

Also, for the Blackhawks, Jonathan Toews, who also left Game 5 with an injury, participated in the morning workout. Toews is likely to play.
