Patrice Bergeron may get more opportunities in the offensive zone in 2016-17.
David Backes started 41.1 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the defensive zone, according to Corsica Hockey, which was the second-highest among forwards with 1,000 minutes or more. The Bruins can give him more of those responsibilities this year and deploy Bergeron on the attack after he started 34.6 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the defensive zone last season. Bergeron and Brad Marchand will be key offensive players for Boston, so more time spent on offense should help the team if Backes can handle the defensive zone. Sep 29 - 7:20 AM

Patrice Bergeron scored in Canada's 4-2 loss to Team USA on Friday night.

The two teams were playing their first pre-tournament game of the World Cup of Hockey and it was a spirited and often times nasty affair. Bergeron's goal was assisted by linemates Sidney Crosby and Brad Marchand. Drew Doughty scored the other marker for the Canadians in the loss.

After missing the playoffs in each of the last two seasons, Patrice Bergeron is hoping the Bruins get back on track in 2016-17.

"I think the last two years have been very disappointing to all of us," said Bergeron. "We definitely want to turn the tide. We are motivated to do that. It’s nice to say it, but you actually have to go on the ice and let your actions speak for themselves. I really like what I’m seeing from the guys and the way that they’re prepared and ready for this season." The 31-year-old scored 32 goals and 68 points in 80 games last season.

Patrice Bergeron is looking forward to playing on the same team as David Backes.

Both players are natural centers, so they probably won't see much ice time together, but that won't stop Bergeron from being excited about the acquisition. "I’m really happy that David is joining the team," Bergeron said in a text message to the Herald. "He brings lots of intangibles that will make our team better. He also brings lots of experience and leadership. I’m looking forward to being his teammate."

Patrice Bergeron has been named a finalist for the Selke Trophy, as the NHL's best defensive forward.

Patrice Bergeron scored two goals and added an assist in a 6-4 loss to Chicago on Sunday.

His 32nd goal of the season is now a career high for the 30-year-old center. His previous high of 31 was set 10 years ago during the 2005-06 season. The line of Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, and Louis Eriksson has been the most dominant in the NHL, combining for the most amount of goals of any other combination. The good news for the Bruins is that they can still make the playoffs if they win their three remaining games.
Apr 3 - 3:23 PM

Patrice Bergeron now has 30 goals in a season for the second time over his last three.

It's also the third time in his career he's notched as many goals. The first time was in 2005-06 with 31 tallies, also his career high. With a few games yet to play, we'd take the over on 1.5 goals for Bergeron through the end of the campaign.
Apr 2 - 12:35 AM

Patrice Bergeron appeared to have his 29th goal of the season on Thursday night, but after a lengthy review it was ruled to be inconclusive.

"Bottom line, you have to find a way to score a goal, and we didn't do that," Bergeron said. "You can talk about that goal that they took away as much as you want, but at the same time it's the rules and you have to find it within yourself to battle back and to get that goal." He hasn't scored a goal in the last eight games and he has one helper in the past six, but Bergeron has been great this season with 62 points in 73 contests.

Patrice Bergeron had an assist in a 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Wednesday.

Mar 8 - 9:31 AM

Patrice Bergeron wasn't impressed with Alex Ovechkin's hit on Kevan Miller.

Miller was forced to leave the game because of the hit while Ovechkin got five minutes for boarding. "I thought Kevan’s back was turned, and the whole way I thought Ovechkin was basically seeing the back of Kevan," Bergeron said. "So, I thought it was a hit from behind, but they took care of it, and hopefully he’s doing better."
Mar 6 - 11:12 AM

Patrice Bergeron got the only goal for the Bruins in their 2-1 overtime loss to the Capitals on Saturday night.

Mar 4 - 7:46 AM

Patrice Bergeron scored his 24th goal of the season in a 2-1 win over the Calgary Flames.

The 30-year-old's power play marker with less than four minutes to play in the third period would stand as the game winner. The goal gives Bergeron 24 goals and 54 points in 62 games this season. Bergeron finished the evening with three shots on goal and two blocked shots in over 21 minutes of ice-time, a game high among Bruins' forwards.
