Patrice Bergeron, Bruins Sure to Celebrate ‘Crown Clincher’ After Claiming Northeast Division (Video)

The Bruins are Northeast Division champions!

Yes, they've got a little ways to go before they'll be satisfied — since another Stanley Cup remains the goal — but this is a pretty big step in the right direction.

Patrice Bergeron scored the eventual game-winner against New York on Sunday to lock the B's into the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference and guarantee home ice for at least the first two rounds of the postseason.

NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is awarding Bergeron our "Crown Clincher" award. Who's your player of the game? Vote in the poll below and leave your thoughts about clinching in the comments below.
