Bergeron had a goal and two assists in Sunday's 5-2 Game 4 win over the Hurricanes. One of the assists came on the power play. Bergeron also earned his team a four-minute power play when he took a high stick in the final minute of the second period. He was cut on the play but got fixed up in the locker room and came right back onto the ice for the third. Bergeron has three goals and three assists in the last three games after being blanked in Game 1.
Bergeron scored two goals -- one on the power play -- on seven shots in Wednesday's 5-2 Game 2 loss to the Hurricanes. Bergeron was the only Bruin able to solve Pyotr Kochetkov, who replaced Antti Raanta (upper body) after Raanta was knocked out by a David Pastrnak hit. Unfortunately for Boston, each of Bergeron's tallies merely reduced Carolina's lead to two goals, and the Hurricanes have built a 2-0 series lead.
Bergeron registered five shots, two PIM and five hits against Carolina in Game 1 on Monday. Bergeron was back on the ice after sitting out the regular-season finale against Toronto on April 29. Much like the rest of his teammates, Bergeron failed to find the back of the net despite his five shots. If the Bruins are going to bounce back from their Game 1 loss, they will need Bergeron to start putting pucks into the back of the net.
Bergeron (rest) will not be in the lineup versus the Leafs on Friday, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports. Bergeron will skip the regular-season finale in order to rest up for the postseason. As such, the world-class center will end the year having recorded 25 goals and 40 assists, including 23 power-play points. Without Bergeron in the lineup, Charlie Coyle will likely move into the first-line center role alongside Jake DeBrusk.
Bergeron scored three goals and a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Sabres. Bergeron potted Boston's first two goals in the second period and completed the hat trick by capping the scoring with just over two minutes left in the third. The veteran center's playing some of his best hockey of the year heading into the playoffs, with five goals and four assists in his last three games. With seeding still on the line, the Bruins may not rest Bergeron for Friday's season finale against Toronto.
