Patrice Bergeron C BOS 5 Months

Patrice Bergeron managed to finish the 2014 playoffs healthy.

"Physically I'm fine, but mentally and with my mood and everything it's definitely not there," Bergeron said after the Bruins were eliminated in Round 2 by Montreal. "It's not where you want to be." He suffered a punctured lung, separated shoulder, and torn rib cartilage last year in the postseason, so keeping his body together this time around could be viewed as a smaller victory. Bergeron finished second on the team in scoring with nine points (three goals, six assists) in 12 games.

Other Bruins who saw their points streak halted in Boston's 1-0 win Thursday were Torey Krug (five games), Milan Lucic (five games) and Brad Marchand (three games).

Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli thinks Patrice Bergeron could become a 35-goal per season forward.

Bergeron reached the 30-goal mark for the second time in his career in 2013-14. He's 28 years old now, but Chiarelli believes Bergeron's "progression won't stop." If nothing else, we wouldn't be surprised if he scores 30 goals again next season.

Patrice Bergeron netted his third goal of the playoffs Tuesday night, but it wan't enough for the Bruins to avoid a 4-2 defeat at the hands of the Canadiens.

Bergeron's second period tally cut the Montreal advantage to 3-1 when it found the back of the net and the Bruins drew even closer in the third frame after Andrej Meszaros picked up his first marker of the postseason, but that was as close as Boston would get. Lars Eller iced the game with an empty-net marker for Montreal in the game's final seconds.

Brad Marchand had a helping hand in both of those markers as well to give him four points in his last two games. Bergeron has recorded a point in six straight contests after he was held off the scoresheet in Game 1 versus Detroit.
