Patrice Bergeron Among NHL Midseason Award Winners, Takes Cake as Biggest All-Star Snub (Podcast)The All-Star break is a chance for teams to regroup, and it couldn’t have come at a better time for the Bruins, who’ve lacked some sharpness of late.

The break also gives us a chance to reflect on the first half that was. And B’s fans saw their club experience the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. The Bruins are still one of the league’s elite, but the Rangers are threatening to become the beasts of the East.

NESN.com Bruins beat writer Doug Flynn caught up with host Ricky Doyle to discuss the first half of the season. During their chat, Flynn handed out some midseason hardware, discussed how the All-Star festivities can improve and what we should expect in the second half of the season.

In fact, Flynn played the role of commissioner and general manager in the same podcast. Impressive.

To hear all of this, some Bruins analysis and a couple of thick Boston accents, listen to the podcast below.
