    Chara has flat out called him co-captain, so I think that's how they actually function even though they don't split wearing the C on the jersey. I suspect Bergeron is just fine with that as he probably doesn't want to be viewed as taking anything away from Chara.

    I'm not going to lie, yes I would love to see the letter on his jersey, but it can wait until after Zee retires. Both of them are the longest-serving captain and alternate captain in the league. That's pretty amazing. I hope the kids in the room realize what they've got there, and I think they do.

    6 goals, 6 assists in his last 6 games despite averaging 16:34 a game. Best case scenario to keep his minutes down heading into playoffs.

    Meet Bergerine, the Iowa girl named after Patrice Bergeron - The Boston Globe

    You might know a Bruins superfan who named their dog Tuukka or Looch. Here’s a new one: a baby girl named after Patrice Bergeron.

    Meet Bergerine, born eight months ago. Her parents, Rob Eilers and Meredith Dinsdale of Mason City, Iowa, had the thrill of meeting their beloved No. 37 after Thursday’s morning skate at the Xcel Energy Center.

    Before posing for photos, Bergeron signed a jersey and inscribed a poster of baby photos, “From one Bergy to another.”

    “It’s flattering,” Bergeron said. “She’s very cute. It’s great to meet them. They’re great fans, obviously.”

    Yeah...I mean, Bergeron is my favorite player, but I wouldn't even name a pet after him, much less a human... o_O And Bergerine?? Uhhhhh... Sorry, kid. :help:

    I have friends who are big Patriots fans and they named their sons Drew and Brady. At least those are "normal" names but I just couldn't name a kid after a pro athlete, no matter how much I enjoy watching said athlete play. :dunno:

    So uh...what's the deal with Mr. Bruin?

    Not impressed through 3 games so far.

    1 PPG off a great play by Marchand that gave him an empty net. 1 Goal late in a game they were already dominating in.

    But ignoring the stats, he just looks off. Losing battles I have never seen him lose. Losing coverage, getting beat consistently on the draw.

    Is he sick/injured?

    Not sure if I buy that considering stats wise, this was a career year for him. Unless he just can't keep up with the playoffs, which I very highly doubt. If that's the case, we better start tanking for lottery picks.

    Which to be fair I think he has earned a lot of leeway. But out of all my concerns going into the playoffs vs. the Leafs, the play of Bergeron was not one of them.

    Not sure tonight was BAD and one of the goals was directly on him. Hes also been messing up the PP and the weak link on it. I was hoping we'd move up Coyle for the third.

    But its Bergeron there is no accountability if he plays poorly he can fire slapshots on Rask during the game and he'll still be on the top line next shift.

    As in like 2 weeks older than he was when he had a career year? Not sure that’s enough to make a difference

    Regular season and playoffs are different

    He is more of an ideal #2 center but has all the pressure to come through as a #1

    His origin is to shut down the opposing best not outscore them. It has been something nice he has built over the years. .. cant expect everything from Patrice

    Legitimately stopped reading this post after the second paragraph

    Hoping the last paragraph is the “just kidding” part

    This is not the regular season

    Think about it

    In 2011 and 2013 he was that shutdown #2 center in the playoffs

    This.

    Hes still human and an athlete who needs to be coached they all do. Its unfair to the guy if you don't give him a couple shifts with other linemates when hes having an uncharacteristically poor game. Flip him and Coyle for a couple shifts and he'll probably snap out of it and be back to normal.

    Little older than his best offensive season ever that ended 1 week ago?

    What a stupid take...

    some were waiting to post these. Didn’t come before PO or during this season... but post these.

    In 2013... not sure what was Bergeron if not a number 1 center!
