Patrice Bergeron, Johnny Boychuk Maintain Strong Defensive Identity to Keep Canucks Off Board (Video)

The Bruins came out on the losing end of a 6-2 battle with the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night, but there was still a silver lining.

Patrice Bergeron led the B’s defense with some strong play in the first period when he stuck close to his man in the defensive zone. Even once the play was out of Bergeron’s range, he came back out to block an attempt at a clean shot by Ryan Stanton, keeping the Canucks off the board early.

Listen to Billy Jaffe break down the play above on the Amica Coverage Cam.
