Patrice Bergeron’s Five Points Help Team Toews Win NHL All-Star Game (Videos)


Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron put on a show Sunday night at the 2015 NHL All-Star Game.

The veteran center tallied five points at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, including his first career All-Star Game goal in the first period. Former Bruins linemate Tyler Seguin set it up with a pass from behind the net.

Bergeron also added four assists, all of which set up goals by New York Islanders center John Tavares. The Islanders captain became the sixth player in All-Star Game history to score four times.

The Bergeron-Tavares combo, which also shined at the 2014 Winter Olympics for Team Canada, propelled Team Toews to a 17-12 victory over Team Foligno.

In addition to his five points, Bergeron finished his first All-Star Game appearance with four shots on goal, two takeaways and a team-leading plus-9 Corsi at even strength. He also won 57 percent of his faceoffs and had 14:35 of ice time.
