Bruins Honor Patrice Bergeron With Ceremony for 1,000th Game

Bruins Honor Patrice Bergeron With Ceremony for 1,000th Game

It was his 20th goal of the year and it came after the team honored Bergeron before the game for playing in 1,000 National Hockey League games, all with the Bruins.

Bergeron was given a number of awards, including a couple of framed photos and paintings, a silver stick and an excellent tribute video with congratulations from past and present teammates such as Glenn Murray, Marco Sturm, Mark Recchi, Shawn Thornton, Adam McQuaid, Chris Kelly and Johnny Boychuk. "That's what I said on the bench, just we've got to find a way, and we did".

The Black and Gold honored the four-time Selke Trophy victor before the game by awarding him a commemorative stick to mark the special occasion, along with a few paintings throughout his career. Kopitar's one-timer from the right circle beat Rask to give Los Angeles a 2-1 lead with 5:58 remaining in the second period.

Iafallo knotted the contest over 3 1/2 minutes later as his one-timer from the right circle beat Rask inside the near post.

"We worked hard to get the 2-1 lead and we kind of feel asleep there", Los Angeles forward Brendan Leipsic said. The goal was his 20th tally of the season and capped a game in which he found Marchand for a shorthanded score in the first period, then delivered a lovely no-look assist to Charlie McAvoy in the second. The best was when he came across the crease to block Peter Cehlarik's shot from the bottom of the right circle.

Wales ‘get out of jail’ to beat Italy for 11th straight win
The first half was a battle of attrition with both sides struggling to make any serious ground with the ball in hand. Italy coach Conor O'Shea rued what he believed to be a missed opportunity.

Kyler Murray is picking football over baseball
The A's remained optimistic as the offseason wore on , and manager Bob Melvin expected him to be at spring training . Murray is projected to be a first-round or second-round pick in the NFL Draft this spring.

Palestinians warm to Netanyahu rival, citing signs of compromise
Mr Gantz said the withdrawal was a "diplomatic move" by the government that was carried out in a "painful but good manner". The Gaza pullout was a boost for the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, which has since fought three wars with Israel.

See, the Bruins entered today's game with a 1-14-2 mark on the year when trailing after two periods (the seventh-worst mark in the NHL), while the Kings were a stellar 16-1-1 in such scenarios (the seventh-best figure in the league). Bergeron joins the exclusive club of Ray Bourque, John Bucyk, Don Sweeney and Wayne Cashman.

The rest of the second period saw this game flipped on its head, though, as the Kings straight-up dominated and outworked the Bruins in all three zones. The teams meet again in Los Angeles on February 16. Bruins D Matt Grzelcyk was out with a lower-body injury. Los Angeles C Jeff Carter missed his third straight with a lower-body injury.

It was the opener of a Los Angeles-Boston doubleheader in TD Garden. The Celtics were set to host the Clippers at night.

Kings: At the Capitals on Monday night.

The Bruins conclude the rare home back-to-back with a Sunday visit from the Colorado Avalanche.
