Bergeron: All-around guy on and off the ice
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Patrice Bergeron’s teammates are running out of superlatives to describe the forward, but after another outstanding all-around effort in Game 3, the legend of Bergy continues to grow -- a shining example of hockey played the right way.
“There’s no doubt he’s a great example…for a coach you know exactly what you’re going to get from him every game,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien.
A relentless effort, excellence in every phase and in this post season he’s taking his offensive game to another level.
“He’s a real special player and we’re definitely lucky to have him. He’s the type of guy that goes out there and plays his type of game and tries to play big every game that he has the opportunity to play,” said Bruins forward Milan Lucic.
Bergeron’s all-around game on the ice has been known for years… but is he the same type of guy off the ice?
“He’s the perfect human being. He really is…every since I’ve been here he’s been beyond his years. He’s a very mature individual,” said Bruins forward Shawn Thornton.
“If you have a daughter, he’s the kind of guy you want dating your daughter,” said Bruins forward Brad Marchand.
