Patrice Bergeron Praises Bruins’ Endurance in Shootout Loss to Kings

Patrice Bergeron Praises Bruins' Endurance in Shootout Loss to Kings The Bruins may have endured a 4-3 shootout loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night, but Bruins assistant captain Patrice Bergeron is happy with the team's comeback effort on the night.

Bergeron said the team knew they were facing a tough battle with the Western Conference competitor, but they also knew they weren't out of the game after going down by three goals early.

"I think it was a good 60-minute effort," Bergeron told NESN's Kathryn Tappen. "Even though they took the lead, I think we kept going and stayed in the game. Timmy [Thomas] made some great saves but I think the whole team battled hard and we got those goals back."

Bergeron also brought some special guests on air with him during Bruins Overtime Live. Every game, a group of kids have the opportunity to sit in a luxury box as a part of Bergeron's foundation, Patrice's Pals. On Saturday, a group of athletes from the Special Olympics were on hand, all decked out in their Bruins gear.
