Patrice Bergeron said he knew that changes were coming to the Bruins roster after they missed the playoffs in 2014-15.
"When you come out of a disappointing year like we had last year, you have to expect changes. It’s definitely unfortunate and you don’t want to see that happen. It’s tough to see guys (Milan Lucic, Dougie Hamilton, Reilly Smith) go, but at the same time, it is unfortunately part of the business," Bergeron said. "I’m excited with the guys that are coming in. They’re happy to be here, they want to be here. I’m excited and looking forward to know the new guys. . . . We just need to jell quickly." Sep 5 - 8:50 AM

Patrice Bergeron felt the Boston Bruins' consistency was a key issue last season.

Bergeron believes Boston's inconsistency partially stemmed from the squad getting too comfortable when holding a one-goal lead. "I think focus might have been part of it, but it’s hard to pinpoint one thing that caused the inconsistency," he added. "But it’s something that we definitely have to fix. Going out in games and wanting to be the difference in the whole game is something we have to accomplish, and we have to resolve it early if we want to be a better team." Bergeron had 23 goals and 55 points in 81 games last season.

Patrice Bergeron has won the Selke Trophy for the third time in four seasons.

The Selke Trophy is "given to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game," and it's easy to see why Bergeron has been so deserving. He now joins Guy Carbonneau, Jere Lehtinen and Pavel Datsyuk as a three-time winner.

Patrice Bergeron is one of the three finalists for the Selke Trophy.

Bergeron should be considered the favorite to win this award for the third time in four years. The Selke Trophy honors the league's top defensive forward and Bergeron led the league with a 60.2 success rate on the draw and looked very good from a Fenwick perspective as well. His relative 5-on-5 Fenwick percentage, which measures how his team did in that category while he was on the ice compared to how they did when he wasn't, was plus-9.35.

Patrice Bergeron admitted that he never expected the Boston Bruins to be in a position to miss the playoffs this year.

"Consistency has been an issue all year for us. When you come down to the wire like that you’re definitely shooting yourself in the foot. It never should have come to this point. We had a lot more chances to get ourselves into the playoffs before that," said Patrice Bergeron. "This is the last thing I was thinking about. I never thought we'd be in this situation. It's hard to get my head around it." The 29-year-old finished the season with 23 goals, 55 points and a plus-2 rating in 81 games.

Patrice Bergeron, who was clipped in the mouth during Thursday's game, wore a full face shield when he returned to the contest and may continue to wear one Saturday night against Toronto.

Bergeron needed 30 stitches to close a gash on the inside of his mouth and may continue to wear the shield until he heals up. It shouldn't really impact on his play.

Patrice Bergeron wasn't pleased with the number of mistakes his team made in Friday's 5-2 loss to Vancouver.

"Too many unforced errors on our part," center Patrice Bergeron said. "Yeah . . . there’s not much to say. It’s about executing, really. Going back to January I think we weren’t complicating things. We were keeping it simple and taking what was there. Right now we’re forcing plays, especially in our zone. That’s when we get in trouble and get back on our heels." The Bruins have now dropped three games in a row.
Feb 15 - 9:09 AM

Patrice Bergeron scored his 16th goal of the season during Boston's 5-2 loss to Vancouver on Friday night.

Bergeron did his best to spark his teammates by cutting Vancouver's lead and momentum in half not five minutes after they'd gone up by two early on in the first period. But it wasn't enough. Bergy would finish with a minor, three shots, and wining 75% of his draws during his 16:14 of ice time. Over four minutes of which were on special teams. He continues to lead Boston in scoring with just 37 points.
