Patrice Bergeron Skating With Sidney Crosby, Rick Nash on Canada’s Top Line

Bruins' forward Patrice Bergeron may likely be front and center when the Canadians take the ice on Tuesday night, as the 24-year-old will be skating alongside Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby and Columbus' Rick Nash, according to

Bergeron and Crosby have a a history together as they found much success in the 2005 World Juniors in North Dakota, where the two combined for 22 points (11 goals, 11 assists) en route to a gold medal.

In 2006, at the World Championships in Latvia, the two were the tournament's top scorers, combining for 16 goals and 16 assists.

"I have no idea exactly what it is, but we just seem to see each other pretty well on the ice," Bergeron told "He's such a great player and so well-positioned on the ice. It's up to us to find each other again, find that chemistry again."

It's unclear as to which player will take the faceoff duties, but needless to say, this line packs a lot of punch.

"I think it's possible [to find that chemistry again]," Crosby added. "Hopefully our games haven't changed that much over the last little while and we're able to adjust pretty quickly. [Bergeron] is a pretty straightforward guy to play with, he's got a lot of speed and he tries to use it to the outside."
