When the Boston Bruins create traffic in front of the net, it creates a lot of problems for opposing goaltenders.

That was the case in the first period of Thursday night’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks, when Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron opened the scoring with a goal off a deflection. Bergeron was situated right in front of the crease and didn’t allow Chicago goaltender Corey Crawford to get a good view of the puck.

Check out the goal in the Berkshire Bank Exciting Rewind video above.

During the 2016-2017 regular season, Berkshire Bank Foundation will donate $100 for each Bruins assist to three local non-profit organizations. Click here to see official rules.

As of Feb. 26, the Berkshire Bank Foundation has raised $4,800 for Cradles to Crayons, which provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive -- at home, at school and at play.



Earlier this season, the foundation raised $10,000 for Soldier On, a private nonprofit organization committed to ending veteran homelessness, and $12,100 for Birthday Wishes, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide birthday parties to children experiencing homelessness.
