Patrice Bergeron C BOS 4 Days

Bergeron picked up a hat trick of assists -- one on an empty-netter -- and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over the Predators.

He's been chugging along steadily of late, having recorded points in seven of the last nine games, during which he's tallied a goal and nine assists. Bergeron's goal production is way down this year thanks to his lowest shooting percentage since 2008-09, as he's found twine only six times on 100 shots. That's sure to see a course correction in time, which will help Bergeron pull up his numbers from what's been a bit of a slower pace by his standards.

Bergeron notched a pair of assists in Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Sharks.

With the two helpers, Bergeron, who had not recorded a point in his previous five games, moved back into a tie for the Bruins' scoring lead with Carl Soderberg. Both forwards have recorded five goals and 18 points in 27 games to date.

Bergeron found the back of the net in the first period of Saturday's 2-1 win over the Hurricanes. It help up as the game winner.

Bergeron has been picking up the slack offensively in the absence of David Krejci (lower body), recording eight points in his last seven games. Bergeron has also fired 56 shots on goal and added 14 PIM this season -- numbers that are right on pace with his norm -- but owners have been let down thus far with his minus-2 rating over 19 games after he went off for a plus-38 in 2013-14.

Bergeron was a force Monday, potting a goal and adding two assists in a 4-2 win over New Jersey.

The 29-year-old has been hot since the calendar turned to November, picking up six of his 12 total points in the last four games. Bergeron also leads the B's with 49 shots on goal, so if he keeps firing that much rubber, his goal total (three) should see an uptick.

Bergeron assisted on two goals in Saturday's win over the Maple Leafs.

With the two assists, Bergeron eclipsed the 500 point mark for his career and surpassed Adam Oates for 13th place on the franchise's scoring list. The reigning Selke Trophy winner is off to a decent start to 2014-15, accumulating one goal and five assists over 10 games. It would seem unreasonable to expect another 30-goal season given his current pace, but he'll probably have a scoring surge or two in him later on to make a run at it.

Bergeron notched an assist in 16:48 worth of ice time in Wednesday's shootout win over Detroit.

As notes, Bergeron endured a bit of an injury scare Wednesday after absorbing a slap shot on his left foot late in the second period of the contest. The B's outstanding two-way pivot fortunately returned for the third period and should be fine for Thursday's game against Montreal.

Bergeron was able to return to Thursday's game against the Red Wings after leaving the contest for a spell in the second period to undergo the league protocol for suspected concussions, the Boston Herald reports.

Bergeron, who the reports notes has sustained four known concussions over his career, was shaken up after absorbing a hit that saw him go awkwardly into the boards early in the second period of the contest, and headed to the dressing room to be evaluated. To the great relief of the Bruins, who were already missing centers David Krejci and Gregory Campbell, Bergeron was cleared to return. Prior to his exit from the game, the B's outstanding two-way pivot scored the Bruins' only goal in the team's 2-1 loss.

Bergeron scored Boston's only goal of the game in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Red Wings. He finished plus-1 with a pair of PIM.

He played just 14:26 due to some kind of minor injury suffered in the second period, but apparently is none the worse for wear. After Bergeron netted an assist in Wednesday's season opener, that's two points in two games for the immensely talented 29-year-old.

Bergeron's teammate, Reilly Smith, has rejoined the Bruins after signing a one-year, $1.4 million deal with the team, the Boston Herald reports.

Smith, who recorded 51 points in 82 games for the B's last season, is thus presumably on track to rejoin left winger Brad Marchand on the Bruins' capable second line, centered by Bergeron, who remains one of the league's elite two-way pivots, on the heels of a season in which he recorded 30 goals and 62 points in 80 games, to go along with a plus-38 mark.

He placed fifth in the league in Hart Trophy voting as well.
