Three Stars 1. Patrice Bergeron – Brad Marchand It looks like Bergeron, Marchand, and the Bruins got the memo. They already showed signs of life in a previous showing against the Flyers, but really dominated on Saturday. As is often the case between Bergeron and Marchand (and David Pastrnak when healthy), it’s difficult to distinguish which star was the biggest Bruins star. Both Bergeron and Marchand generated three points (2G, 1A apiece), so it makes perfect sense to give them the top star slot as a duo. In particular, Marchand probably didn’t deserve too much heat for the Bruins’ bumps on offense. He only failed to score in a single game so far this season, with this three-point night pushing him to seven points in five contests. It’s promising that Bergeron is heating up, as the 35-year-old continues to battle Father Time (six points in five games). At this rate, the Flyers must feel somewhat fortunate that their record isn’t worse than 3-2-1. Sums up the start to this season. pic.twitter.com/e3qS8RASmM — Broad Street Hockey (@BroadStHockey) January 24, 2021 2.
