Patrice Bergeron came out for the warmups ahead of Game 6. He skated hard and took his usual spot with Brad Marchand and Jaromir Jagr during the line rushes.

But then the player who usually stays on the ice until the last possible minute skated off with nearly six minutes remaining and headed to Boston's dressing room.

The speculation rose that Bergeron would be unable to go tonight, until the official roster was finally released just before puck-drop.

Bergeron is in the lineup.
