Daniel Briere scored off a rebound with four-tenths of a second left in the third period to lift the Colorado Avalanche to a 2-1 win over the Boston Bruins on Monday.
Patrice Bergeron and Carl Soderberg each had a goal, Chad Johnson stopped 31 shots for his third career shutout, and the Boston Bruins beat the Colorado Avalanche 2-0 on Friday night for their 11th win in a row.
Patrice Bergeron revealed the injuries that he played through following the Bruins’ loss in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.
Jonathan Toews watched the end of the fifth game of the Stanley Cup Final from the Blackhawks bench, unable to play after a hit to his head.
This series is many things, but the battle between Toews and Bergeron will come to the forefront from this point forward. No matter what this year’s numbers say, those two are hockey twins.
It’s very rare you see Patrice Bergeron get into a dust up, but when Evgeni Malkin wanted to dance following the second period of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday night, the Bruins’ assistant captain was up to the challenge.
