Patrice Bergeron scores two goals in 1,000th career game

Patrice Bergeron scores two goals in 1,000th career game

Tuesday's game vs the Islanders was a special one for Patrice Bergeron.

It marked the 1000th game of Bergeron's illustrious 15-year career. The B's veteran was honored for the occasion at TD Garden. . .

. . . and later on, he finished off a Brad Marchand/David Pastrnak 2-on-1 to give the Bruins a 1-0 lead.

That's a goal Bergeron won't soon forget and Marchand immediately went after the puck to give to his longtime teammate.

The B's showed even more respect for Bergeron in the game's final seconds. Pastrnak passed up the empty-netter, instead letting Bergeron do the honors.

Bergeron's unforgettable night was topped off by a bear hug from none other than Zdeno Chara.
