According to the National Hockey League website on Monday, Canadian Olympic gold medalist Patrice Bergeron of L'Ancienne-Lorette, Quebec has been named the National Hockey League's second star of the week from March 24-30.
Bergeron had five goals and one assist in four games for the Boston Bruins this past week including two goals in an impressive 3-0 victory in a Stanley Cup Final rematch against the reigning Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.
Even though Bergeron had six points, the Bruins did see their twelve game winning streak come to an end when they lost 2-1 to the Montreal Canadiens last Monday. The Bruins also beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3 and the Washington Capitals 4-2 this past week.
Bergeron has 27 goals and 29 assists for 56 points this season. He won a gold medal for Canada in men's hockey at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver and the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. He has three assists in 13 games for Team Canada over the last two Olympic Winter Games.
Kyle Turris of the Ottawa Senators was named the NHL's first star of the week and T.J. Oshie of the St. Louis Blues was named the NHL's third star of the week.
