Patrice Bergeron’s four goals, including a power-play hat trick, carried the Gold and Black to a 5-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings.
“Honestly, I think it’s one of those things where I have been in the league long enough to know it’s going to come back, right? So I think I have the experience that I can rely on,” Bergeron had to say on his four-goal night.
Brad Marchand had all of the primary assists for all four of Bergeron’s goals giving himself a four-goal night. The defense and penalty kill had itself a night as well. Only allowing 15 shots on goal and killing three out of four power plays.
Mike Reilly potted his first Bruins goal, a short-handed goal in the third. “I feel like it was coming ever since I got to Boston. I feel like there’s been a lot of chances… shots, tips, so a little frustrated but good to get it out of the way,” Reilly said on his goal in the third.
The Bruins travel to Toronto to play the Maple Leafs on Saturday with Linus Ullmark slated to get the start.
