Patrice Bergeron expects to be in the lineup when the Boston Bruins begin the regular season, although he could be limited at the start of training camp because of a groin injury.

"I'm feeling good, I'm feeling positive, I'll be ready definitely for the start of the season," Bergeron said. "So that's not even an issue."

The 34-year-old forward said Monday he had a shot in the injured area in hopes of helping his recovery. The Bruins, who open training camp Thursday, visit the Dallas Stars in their regular-season opener Oct. 3.
