Bruins

Add another highlight to Patrice Bergeron's future Hockey Hall of Fame reel.

The Boston Bruins forward tallied his 66th point of the season Saturday night, opening the scoring against the Columbus Blue Jackets with a nifty backhand goal.

What made this goal so special? It was Bergeron's 800th career point.

That puts the 33-year-old in elite NHL company, as he's now one of only 14 active NHL players with at least 800 points. (His former Bruins teammate, Joe Thornton, tops the list at 1,469).

Bergeron already passed the 1,000-career-game mark earlier this year and certainly hasn't lost a step; he's just four goals, nine points and six total points away from matching career highs for a season in all three categories.
