Patrice Bergeron netted his sixth goal of the season in Wednesday's overtime win over Minnesota.
He snapped an 11-game goalless drought in the process. Bergeron hasn't been quiet offensively of late, with six points in his last six outings, but he had been starving in the goal department. The ripple effect of David Krejci's return should help players like Bergeron get back on track in Boston. Dec 18 - 10:05 AM

Patrice Bergeron missed a good chunk of the third period because of a hand injury on Saturday.

Bergeron was slashed by Senators' forward Mike Hoffman and did not return in the period. The 29-year-old seemed to have avoided serious injury though, because he did come back for overtime. The Bruins have been hit hard by injuries and losing Bergeron would have been devastating.

Patrice Bergeron had a strong effort with two assists over the Sharks Thursday night, but the Bruins lost 7-4.

"It's one thing to generate offense and find ways to score goals but you can't let away your whole team defense," Bergeron said. The Bruins allowed 44 shots on Tuukka Rask, including two dozen in the Sharks' four-goal second. That being said, Bergeron's individual effort to set up Reilly Smith's first goal 29 seconds in was sweet.

Patrice Bergeron registered the game-winning goal for Boston in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Blues.

Despite playing without linemate Brad Marchand, Bergeron netted his fifth of the season in the winning effort. Blueliner Torey Krug also joined in on the action by chalking up his third of the season in the winning effort.

Patrice Bergeron scored the game-winning goal in Boston's 2-1 win over Carolina on Saturday.

It's a nice bounce-back win for the Bruins, who were pounded by both Toronto and Montreal earlier this week. The goal was Bergeron's fourth of the season. He now has 14 points in 19 games this season. The 29-year-old was named the game's second star.
Nov 15 - 3:42 PM

Patrice Bergeron had a five-game point streak stopped in Thursday's loss to Montreal.

He had two goals and five assists during his scoring spree. Unfortunately, Bergeron hasn't been nearly as successful at protecting his own end of late. He has been on the ice for seven even strength goals against over his past three contests and he posted a minus-3 rating in Thursday's 5-1 defeat.

Patrice Bergeron was in on three of the Bruins' goals in their 4-2 victory over the visiting New Jersey Devils Monday night.

The crafty center produced his third goal of the season in unassisted fashion and also posted his seventh and eighth assists of the season. His assists came on goals by Reilly Smith, his fourth of the season, and Carl Soderberg, his fifth. Smith also notched his fifth assist of the season on Soderberg's goal. Boston's other goal was a beauty by Seth Griffith, his fourth. Griffith blocked a shot in the Bruins' end and skated on an end-to-end rush through two defenders. Marek Zidlicky put a hit on Griffith as the Boston forward approached the Devils' net, but Griffith turned his back to the goal and then wristed a shot through his legs that also went through goaltender Cory Schneider's legs.
Nov 10 - 10:03 PM

Patrice Bergeron recorded his second goal of the season in Tuesday's overtime win over Florida.

He hadn't found the back of the net since Oct. 9. Bergeron was back with Brad Marchand and Reilly Smith in the contest and they picked up assists on his marker in the second period. He also led the Bruins with six shots on goal.
Nov 5 - 7:07 AM

Patrice Bergeron will start Thursday's game with new linemates.

He skated between Chris Kelly and Simon Gagne during the pregame warmup. That trio was also together for Wednesday's practice.
Oct 30 - 6:51 PM

Patrice Bergeron recorded his 500th point in Boston's win over Toronto on Saturday.

Bergeron reached the milestone by collecting an assist on Carl Soderberg's goal. Bergeron is one of the best two-way players in the game. He is arguably the most important forward on the Bruins' roster, and his value is even more enhanced by the absence of Zdeno Chara. The 29-year-old has one goal and six assists in 10 games this season. He should get those numbers back up fairly soon.
Oct 26 - 9:38 AM

Patrice Bergeron and his linemates have been struggling offensively and defensively at the start of the 2014-15 season.

Bergeron has posted a minus-4 rating in his past two outings and he hasn't scored a goal in his last seven contests. "It's definitely something I take a lot of pride in and something that can't happen," he said. "I'm here to, on both sides of the ice, help the team, and you can't be on the ice for that many goals." He has one marker, four points and a minus-3 rating in nine matches.
Oct 24 - 9:07 AM

With his assist in Boston's 4-0 win over Buffalo on Saturday night, Patrice Bergeron tied Adam Oates for 13th all-time on the Bruins' scoring list.

The point was the 499th of Bergeron's career. After suffering a serious neck injury a few years ago, Bergeron's career was in doubt. The 29-year-old is now one of the best two-way center's in the game, and he will continue to climb up Boston's scoring list. Bergeron has one goal and four points in seven games this season.
Oct 19 - 9:21 AM

Patrice Bergeron had another injury scare Wednesday when he blocked a shot by Detroit's Dan DeKeyser.

He limped off the ice in the second period after the puck struck him in the foot. Bergeron was OK to play in the third and he appears to be all right. When the Bruins played the Red Wings last Thursday, Bergeron made a trip to the quiet room after a hit from Niklas Kronwall and he was elbowed by Johan Franzen. Playing Detroit early into the year has not been kind to Bergeron's health, but he's escaped unscathed so far.

Patrice Bergeron had a trip to the "quiet room" in Thursday's 2-1 loss to Detroit.

Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall crunched the Bruins center into the end boards early in the second period. He left the contest to undergo concussion testing, but knew he would be back. "It's one of those protocols that you have to respect, I guess," said Bergeron. "I had to go to the quiet room and it takes forever to go through that test. It took a little bit of time, but otherwise I was fine the whole time." He was also on the receiving end of an elbow from Detroit's Johan Franzen late in the third, but he stayed in the game and appears to be fine.
Oct 10 - 9:20 AM

Patrice Bergeron intercepted a Jonathan Ericsson pass and then sniped home a laser over Jimmy Howard's left shoulder to put the Bruins up 1-0 in the first.

But that's all the offense Boston would produce. They tested Howard just 17 times all game. Bergeron played just 14:26 and a little over three minutes of special teams in the loss. He also only managed to win 57% of his faceoffs.
