Patrice Bergeron didn't turn off his defensive switch in the All-Star Game.
"I wanted to play in the final," Bergeron said. "A few guys on the Metropolitan team were telling me I wasn't allowed to back-check, that it was an unwritten rule in the All-Star Game. I didn't know about that." That may have been the "rule" in the old format, but there was plenty of compete during the mini 3-on-3 tournament. Bergeron flew home in the morning and he's ready to help the Bruins battle for a playoff spot. Feb 1 - 9:52 AM

Avalanche forward Matt Duchene has a ton of respect for Bruins center Patrice Bergeron.

"I think the one thing you notice with Bergy, just the guy doesn’t make a mistake," said Duchene. "I think he’s as close to the perfect hockey player as you could ever find." The two were teammates at the Olympics and the Spengler Cup. Bergeron is known for his incredible two-way ability on the ice. The 30-year-old has 19 goals and 44 points in 49 games this season.

Patrice Bergeron netted his 19th goal of the season in Monday's 3-2 win over Philadelphia.

Patrice Bergeron scored his 18th goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Montreal.

Patrice Bergeron netted two goals in the Bruins’ 3-2 win against the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Bergeron, who also had five shots on goal, has been sensational this year, as he now has 17 goals and 40 points in 44 games. Of course, he’s remained one of the best defensive centers, too. The goal snapped a skid of five without one. Brad Marchand scored the winner with 47 seconds remaining, and he also had four penalty minutes and six shots on goal.

With nearly half of the Boston Bruins' season in the books, Patrice Bergeron is still on pace to surpass his career-high of 73 points.

Bergeron has another assist on Saturday, giving him 38 points in 40 contests. He's currently on pace to score 30 goals and 77 points as a result. Bergeron set that career-high back in his sophomore season when it looked like he would be an elite scorer. Instead he ended up missing most of the 2007-2008 campaign due to a concussion and his offensive production was significantly reduced when he returned. He's bounced back to the point where he's had some great offensive seasons since then, but it's certainly interesting to see him fully regain his sophomore pace at the age of 30. Of course we'd be remiss if we didn't acknowledge that Bergeron has won the Selke Trophy three times since missing nearly a full season due to a concussion, illustrating that he has been a superb player, even if he hasn't reached the 70-point mark since that incident.
Jan 10 - 9:33 AM

Patrice Bergeron scored a goal and added an assist as the Bruins fell to the Capitals by a score of 3-2.

Bergeron now totals an impressive 15 goals and 37 points in 38 games. Teammate Loui Eriksson scored Boston's other goal.
Jan 5 - 9:55 PM

Patrice Bergeron wants his teammates to move on from their Winter Classic loss to the Canadiens.

"Bottom line is it’s a two-point game," Bergeron said. "It’s a regular-season game. We’ve lost some games this year where we didn’t play our best and it’s disappointing on a big stage like the Winter Classic to not show up like that, but at the same time you have to put it behind you and move forward. We’re playing some big teams coming up and it’s huge points for us."
Jan 3 - 11:54 AM

Patrice Bergeron's faceoff workload is expected to increase with David Krejci sidelined.

He led the league with 1,951 draws taken last season when Krejci missed most of the year. "I guess time will tell, but I'm ready for that. I'm ready for whatever," Bergeron said. "But this year we have centers that can take draws. Landon [Ferraro] is another right-handed shot that can take draws on that side, so we'll see what happens." He won 17 puck drops and lost 11 against Ottawa on Tuesday night, while scoring two goals in a 7-3 victory. Both of his markers were scored on the power play.
