The first line provided the Bruins their first goal Wednesday afternoon at Scotiabank Arena.
But, far more importantly, the unit delivered the final goal of Game 1 between Boston and Carolina.
The B’s and Hurricanes needed not one, but two overtime periods to decide the series opener of their first-round Stanley Cup Playoff series. Patrice Bergeron played the role of hero for the Black and Gold, taking a David Pastrnak pass in stride and ripping it past Petr Mzarek’s pad side to give the Bruins a 4-3 win.

It was a two-point afternoon for Bergeron, who assisted on Pastrnak’s goal.
