You should know that Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand give the Boston Bruins a little reminder of what they can do before the Stanley Cup tournament.
After a couple of weeks with David Pastrnak and Hampus Lindholm missing the moment due to injuries and their playoff result recorded a few months ago in an Eastern Conference, Patrice Bergeron and Marchand exploded last weekend in a 5-3 win against each other. in Montreal Canada.
Amid a memorial at the Bell Center where Quebecois legend Guy Lafleur was honored at the time of his sad passing, Bergeron scored two goals to earn fourth place on the list. of all -time goals for the Boston Bruins (397) ahead of Ray Bourque. Bergeron sits just five behind Rick Middleton for third place on the Boston Bruins roster of all time and only three goals out of 400 career goals the Boston Bruins would like. he will join Middleton, Phil Esposito and Johnny Bucyk in an independent black. Gold Club.
But before it becomes too late for history, it’s about the 36 -year -old Bergeron refusing a night out in Montréal and instead returning his game on the road despite desperately wanting to be a piece. of the Lafleur memorial.
“[Bergeron] a legend in Boston, obviously, as a [Jean] Beliveau is here or there [Jacques] Lemaire, Lafleur’s center and a real professional player and a very good two -way player, “said Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy.” It’s good to work here in his home country. Bergie.
“It was a long year for you to be that year and you played those many games. It was the 79th game for him and he was back. We talked to him about ‘do you like the night?’ We have five games in seven days to end the season. It’s kind of an insane ending. But he wanted to play in front of his parents, which was good for him. I’m glad he decided.
That means Bergeron maintaining his good foot forward (23 goals and 59 points in 74 games) at his home country of Quebec against a Canadiens team he didn’t dare his childhood and acted in front of his loving parents within. the stands.
Bergeron finished with two goals, three points and a 3-yard touchdown run in 15:36 ice time and scored three points on the net, three hits and won 11-of-15 in an all-around playoff game. . Marchand sits with one goal in April so far and hasn’t lost a netter missing in the last two games.

But his overall game and his commitment to winning 100 percent of the games there in Montreal are also there, including Saturday’s game against the Rangers. People talked about the net not going past, but they didn’t talk about Marcha hustling to win an ice rink to hold the puck at the Rangers ’end for 30 seconds. It’s the unheralled games that win games in the gaming industry.
Marchand finished with two assists, scoring a 2-point lead in 16:51 and Jeff Petry fired well as the Montreal defender lowered the boom with a beautiful performance from Bergeron on the run. Part not standing in the first place.

“It is a matter for others to enter [for Marchand]. Lots of good features, even more recent games. He was there. Lots of different bounces. I think we know that [against the Rangers]. He’s gone in the past, “Bergeron said, before Sunday’s game talking about March and when he’ll talk to himself.” You have to trust him. that knowledge is past. It’s one good exchange and then back on track, and you get a lot of confidence out of it.
Trent Frederic visited Petry at the end of the first period to inform him that No. 1 would not be arrested.
But all Bergeron did was keep the game going after scoring the first goal of the game for the first time.
He finished with a netter gap in the final seconds for his 22ndnd goal of the season and get as many goals on Sunday night as he did in 11 games last April.
It’s a stark reminder to Boston’s best players that Boston’s best players are once again on the verge of regaining the Bruins ’good health, and while the postseason is fast moving for the players like Bergeron and Marchand are alive for this time of year.
“We continue to work on our game and head well into the playoffs. I think that’s the most important thing. You don’t want to run the final games and expect to make a change when it goes away. You’re in the playoffs, ”said Bergeron, who will be looking at some sort of rest this week with three games left in the regular season. schedule and date of first round vs. Carolina as far as possible. “You have to think positively and think and continue what you’re doing well.”
If it’s better and more thoughtful for the coming weeks the Stanley Cup playoffs are the name of the game in Montréal, Bergeron and Marchand are where they need to be with three games left until the end of the season. postseason.
