Patrice Bergeron questionable for game against Wild

Classified as just a maintenance day, but those are just words from Julien

Patrice Bergeron played a season low 14:25 last game. Granted, a fight in the middle of the game limited the minutes he could play, and it wasn't worth playing him much down the stretch with a solid lead, but one has to wonder if the few minutes around the fight played a role in his condition. Either way, Claude Julien called him questionable for the game tomorrow against Minnesota.

The injury could have happened during the fight with Blake Wheeler, or in the events leading up to the fight, which had Brad Marchand jump in and give Wheeler a noogie.
