The Boston Bruins got fans extremely excited when a group of familiar faces returned to practice after being away with injury. 

Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, Kevan Miller, Jake DeBrusk, Urho Vaakanainen all hit the ice for practice with their teammates. 

Despite returning to practice, it doesn't look like anybody will anybody will be ready for Thursday's game against the Anaheim Ducks. 

So who's most likely to return to the lineup first?

Cassidy believes that it's most likely Bergeron, as everybody else from the group was wearing no-contact jerseys.

"Bergie skated in a full contact and is feeling better. I don't have a definitive timeline, but he's progressing well and could potentially play this weekend," said Cassidy. "It's nice just that things run a little bit smoother with guys that have been around. The practice habits, the pace of the drills and the mood of the team [gets lifted]. I think that's the biggest thing. Guys know that they're getting close when they're with the rest of the group. That's the biggest noticeable difference with everybody is the jump in the [team's] step."

So if anybody can return Thursday it's Bergeron, however we'll have to wait to find out.
