Rene Bourque: (Concussion) Could Return Next Week Staff

Update: Bourque (concussion) could return to the Canadiens' lineup next week, the Montreal Gazette reports. "Rene is real close," coach Michael Therrien said. "I don't think he'll play this weekend but he's real close."

Recommendation: While the news is encouraging, Bourque was believed to be close to returning in late March before suffering a setback in his recovery. Bourque has been out since Feb. 21, derailing what looked to be a promising campaign.
