More details in the morning Globe and Boston.com, but Marc Savard is expected to start skating with the Bruins in the next 2-3 days.
According to general manager Peter Chiarelli, reached today as he made his way from Toronto to Boston, the 33-year-old Savard has continued to make good progress since ''ramping up'' his workouts a couple of weeks ago.
''He's doing much, much better,'' said Chiarelli. ''He has been symptom-free for a while now, increasing his skating...all in all, he looks good.''
Savard, likely 6-8 weeks from returning to the lineup, was diagnosed with post-concussion symptoms, including depression, before the start of September's training camp.
