Bergeron recorded a goal and an assist Wednesday, in a 5-2 loss to the Flames.

EDGE Analysis

Another multi-point performance puts Bergeron at 13 for the season, tied for second in the league behind Maple Leafs forward, Auston Matthews. Since going pointless in the first game of the year, the veteran forward has notched at least two points in each of the five games that followed. So long as he remains healthy, Bergeron's production level should remain high, considering he plays in all scenarios.

Bergeron dished out three assists -- one on the power play -- in Saturday's 8-2 win over the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

The injury-riddled Detroit defense looked helpless against Boston's top line of Bergeron, David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand, as the trio combined for eight points, including a Pastrnak hat trick. With five goals and six assists through five games, the 33-year-old Bergeron is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, he's likely to exceed a point-per-game pace for the first time in his career this season after coming tantalizingly close with 63 points in 64 appearances last season.

Bergeron generated an empty-net goal and a power-play assist in Thursday's 4-1 home win over the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

Bergeron made his presence felt with a power-play apple to Brad Marchand in the first period, then the prolific two-way center dropped the dagger into an unguarded cage with 35 seconds remaining in the contest. There was a moderate degree of concern about Bergeron's back injury in the preseason, so he's been limited to 16:48 of ice time through the first four games. However, you wouldn't know that his playing time has been scaled back since he's produced five goals and eight points so far.

Bergeron had a monster game Monday, registering four points, including three goals in a 6-3 win over Ottawa.

EDGE Analysis

Bergeron now has six points in three games, including four goals. Even if Boston struggles as a team, fantasy owners can always rely on Bergeron to produce. If he can remain healthy, Bergeron should register another 60-plus point campaign in 2018-19.

Bergeron recorded a short-handed goal and an assist in a 4-0 victory over the Sabres on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The short-handed score was also an empty netter. Although he didn't play particularly well Wednesday, his injured back didn't seem to bothering him in the season opener. That was again confirmed Thursday with his multi-point night. In just 64 games last season, Bergeron scored 30 goals and 63 points. He's going to be hard pressed to repeat those numbers even if healthy, but owners can expect another 60-plus point campaign from Bergeron.

Bergeron (back) went minus-2 over 15:23 of ice time in Wednesday's 7-0 loss to the Capitals to open the season.

EDGE Analysis

This had to be an unsettling outcome for a guy who prides himself on being one of the best two-way players in the business. Of course, it was a total team collapse, and there actually wasn't a single Boston skater that posted worse than a minus-2 rating in this one. More importantly for Bergeron, he won 80 percent of his faceoffs (16 for 20) and didn't seem bothered by his back injury from the preseason.

Bergeron (back) centered the Bruins' top line during Wednesday's morning rushes.

EDGE Analysis

Bergeron is thus slated to suit up in Wednesday night's season opener against the Capitals. It's been quite a while since the stellar two-way pivot has seen game action, but assuming no injury setbacks, it shouldn't take Bergeron long to get back into gear. In addition to centering one of the NHL's top lines, Bergeron is also slated to see first-unit power-play duty for the Bruins this season.

Per coach Bruce Cassidy, Bergeron (back) should be good to go for Wednesday's season opener against the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Bergeron shed his non-contact jersey at Monday's practice and has been able to avoid any setbacks, which sets the stage for him to center the Bruins' top line Wednesday, as well as see first-unit power play duty against the Caps.

Bergeron (back) shed his non-contact jersey at Monday's practice, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bergeron has been trending toward being available for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Capitals and the fact that he appears to be practicing fully Monday bodes well for that happening. Heading into the 2017-18 season, Bergeron will continue to skate on the Bruins' top line, along with Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak.

Coach Bruce Cassidy believes that Bergeron (back) will be ready to play in Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

It appears as though Bergeron will sit out Saturday's preseason finale against the Flyers, but the Bruins' stellar two-way pivot figures to be out there for the team's season opener. He's slated to continue to skate with Brad Marchand and Davis Pastrnak, with the trio forming one the NHL's top line combos.
