Patrice Bergeron Scores Textbook Goal In Bruins’ Win Over Toronto (Video)

No one ever accused the Bruins of being prolific offensively this season. But over the weekend, Boston stepped up in the offensive zone en route to a crucial win.

Early in the second period of Saturday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, Patrice Bergeron corralled his own rebound and buried a goal high corner past goaltender James Reimer. While the tally was a nifty one, NESN’s Andy Brickley Brick highlighted what set Bergeron up in initially: Reaching the puck first and situating himself in the high slot to be primed for a scoring chance.

The goal was Boston’s only tally in regulation, but the B’s skated away with a 2-1 shootout win.
