Bergeron recorded a goal and an assist Wednesday in a 5-2 loss to the Flames. 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. 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. 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. 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 shorthanded goal and an assist in a 4-0 victory over the Sabres on Thursday. The shorthanded score was also an empty netter. Although Bergeron 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.
