The Boston Bruins took an early lead over the Philadelphia Flyers, and they have Patrice Bergeron to thank for it.
The Bruins’ pivot was on the finishing end of a goal to give Boston a 1-0 lead in the first period. Bergeron’s tally came after a Brad Marchand initial shot, which was deflected in front of the net by Craig Smith.
Bergeron collected the rebound, sent it to his forehand and slid in a shot past Flyers goaltender Carter Hart.

It’s the 900th point of Bergeron’s career.
