NHL Recaps: Patrice Bergeron leads Bruins
Bruins 5 vs Lightning 3
Boston’s Patrice Bergeron recorded his 1,000th NHL point as the Bruins equaled their longest winning streak at seven games, defeating the host Tampa Bay Lightning 5-3 on Monday night.
Bergeron, 37, dished out the secondary assist on Brad Marchand’s second-period tally for his milestone. He became the fourth Bruin to do so — joining Ray Bourque (1,506), John Bucyk (1,339) and Phil Esposito (1,012). He is the eighth active NHL player to reach that milestone.
“It’s a special game that gives you a lot, obviously you go through a lot of ups and downs,” Bergeron said. “But in the end all you remember is those memories, friendships and the guys you go to battle with. It was a special moment.”NHL.com
