Keep Calm and Bergeron

image

BostonBruins.com - If youth hockey coaches wanted to explain the perfect hockey player to their teams, all they would have to do is hold up a picture of Patrice Bergeron.

The Bruins’ alternate captain and the defending Selke Award winner, for best defensive forward in the NHL, does everything well - whether it’s killing a penalty, winning a faceoff, backchecking, winning a battle in the corner, or scoring the game-winning goal on the power play, Bergeron can deliver.

In Sunday night’s 3-1 win over the Sabres’ Bergeron did all of those things. In 19 minutes of ice time, he tallied five shots on net, won 12 of 19 faceoffs (63-percent), contributed to another perfect penalty killing night, and scored the winner on the man advantage, 7:52 into the third period.
