The Boston Bruins didn't have a ton going against Carey Price in the first 40 minutes on Tuesday night but Patrice Bergeron was a rare exception.

He was clearly one of the best Bruins on the ice, continually getting pressure with his linemates in the Canadiens zone. He was having a heck of a game but without much payoff. That was until he did what he does better than anything else; win a faceoff and then move toward the shooting lane.

When Torey Krug fired the shot high it appeared to be going wide but somehow Bergeron got his stick up and actually redirected it on net and over Price's shoulder into the top corner. You won't see many tips better than that.

There might be something to this theory.
