Bruins' Zdeno Chara pays tribute to Patrice Bergeron's 1000th NHL game in Instagram post

Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron played in his 1,000th career NHL game in Saturday's thrilling 5-4 overtime win against the Los Angeles Kings, and B's captain Zdeno Chara paid tribute to his teammate with a heartfelt Instagram post.

Check out the photo and caption from Chara below:

Bergeron scored twice and added an assist in Boston's win Saturday, helping the Bruins move within a point of the rival Montreal Canadiens for third place in the Atlantic Division.

Chara and Bergeron have a special bond. They are the unquestioned leaders of the team, they won a Stanley Cup championship together in 2011 and likely will have their respective numbers retired to the Garden rafters in the future.

Bergeron does not have an Instagram page, but it wouldn't be surprising if he gives some sort of public message to Chara when/if the Bruins captain hits the 1,500 games played mark next season.

It's a beautiful day in Boston. Would be great for a.....

OK, we won't say it. 

Ouch.

And for you masochistic Bruins fans, here's a peek at the Blues' Stanley Cup victory parade.

The true highlight though was a let's say, buzzed Brett Hull, the Hall of Famer and ex-Blues great, addressing the more than half a million revelers in downtown St. Louis.

"We went, Blues!"

Twelve parades in 18 years and no Papelbon jig, Gronk beer spike or Paul Pierce coughing up a victory cigar can really match that.
