There is little doubt that no one ever will wear No. 37 for the Boston Bruins again once Patrice Bergeron hangs up his skates.
The 33-year-old played in his 1,000th career game, all of them for the Black and Gold, as the B’s defeated the New York Islanders 3-1 on Tuesday night. Bergeron netted two goals, adding to a résumé that already has him among the Bruins’ all-time greats, and will likely earn him Hall of Fame attention.
