Bergeron scored a short-handed goal in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Devils.
His first tally of the season came in almost ironic fashion -- the Bruins took a bench minor challenging a would-be goal disallowed due to goaltender interference, only for Bergeron to fire one home on the ensuing power play for New Jersey. The veteran center has recorded at least 30 goals in three straight seasons without playing more than 65 games in any of them, and even with the shortened schedule in 2020-21, his checkered injury history might be a bigger obstacle to him reaching that mark again.
Bergeron recorded an assist in 19:32 worth of ice time in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over New Jersey.
The Bruins' captain also saw first-unit power play duty and time as a penalty killer in the team's season opener. As long as he's in the lineup, Bergeron will remain a viable fantasy option, while skating on the team's top line with Brad Marchand and for now, Jack Studnicka, who's filling in for David Pastrnak (hip).
Bergeron has been named captain of the Bruins.
It's a role that the highly-respected all-around center was expected to assume following the departure of Zdeno Chara, who captained the team from 2006-20. As the upcoming season approaches, Bergeron continues to man the middle of team's top line and is in line to remain a power-play mainstay. Though his usual right winger David Pastrnak will miss time early on due to a hip injury, it does look like Brad Marchand (groin) will be ready for Boston's season opener. For now, it appears as though Jack Studnicka will get a chance to fill in for Pastrnak, but either way, Bergeron maintains fantasy utility on the heels of a 2019-20 campaign in which he recorded 31 goals and 56 points in 61 games to go along with a plus-23 rating.
Bergeron's chronic groin problem flared up during the postseason, as he told reporters, "It's the same old song and dance with this. It comes and goes and it's something I just manage and deal with," per Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston.
Bergeron followed up saying he was going to take a few weeks off to help get the situation under control. While it's unlikely to impact his availability for the start of the 2020-21 campaign, fantasy players will want to be aware of the situation heading into next year since he could miss a few games from time to time. Even if he is occasionally limited, Bergeron should be capable of recording an eighth straight 50-plus point season.
Bergeron scored the game-winning goal and added an assist with two shots in Wednesday's 4-3 double-overtime victory over Carolina in Game 1.
Bergeron snapped a shot past Carolina netminder Petr Mrazek from the right faceoff dot early in the second overtime for his first goal of the postseason. He also drew an assist on David Pastrnak's first-period goal. Bergeron had just one assist in Boston's three round-robin games before breaking out in the first-round opener. The 35-year-old had 31 goals and 56 points in 61 games centering Pastrnak and Brad Marchand on Boston's top line this season.
Bergeron (undisclosed) was given a maintenance day Monday and is expected back at practice Tuesday, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Bruins fans and fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief after Bergeron missed Monday's practice. The Quebec native will continue holding down the top-line center role and should keep racking up points with linemates David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand.
Bergeron missed Monday's practice session for undisclosed reasons.
Even if it was just a maintenance day for Bergeron, the team won't be able to offer much in terms of news. Fantasy players will have to wait and see if the elite center gets back on the ice ahead of Wednesday's round-robin clash with Tampa Bay. If the Quebec native does miss any game action, it would likely fall to David Krejci to take his spot on the first line with Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak.
Bergeron has 31 goals, 56 points and a plus-23 rating in 61 games this season.
If the 2019-20 NHL campaign is over, it would be the first season in Bergeron's career where he scored more goals (31) than assists (25).

The 34-year-old center has scored at least 30 goals in three straight seasons.

The veteran center hadn't recorded a multi-point game since Dec. 27, but Bergeron was a magnet for the puck in this afternoon affair. He now has 23 goals and 46 points through 47 games, and he may only need to stay healthy to record his first career 80-point campaign.
Bergeron had an assist, three shots and a hit in Tuesday's 4-0 shutout of the Canucks.
After Charlie McAvoy's shot deflected off a defender's skate, Bergeron found the puck and fed Brad Marchand at the center of the ice, and Marchand put the Bruins up 2-0. The B's top line has eased up offensively in recent weeks, with Bergeron specifically having only nine points over his last 15 games. While the numbers are still impressive, comparing them to the dominance displayed by the line early in the season is mildly disappointing. Through 45 games, Bergeron has collected 22 goals and 43 points.

It's Bergeron's fourth game-winning goal of the season and second in three games. He continues to score at a point-per-game pace (19 goals, 19 assists in 37 games), although this is just his third point in his last six outings. However, the Bruins have won three straight and Bergeron has been a big part of that. The guy is clutch, plain and simple.
