Bruins Notebook

Patrice Bergeron a finalist for Selke Trophy

In Game 7 against Toronto, Patrice Bergeron scored the two most critical goals of 2013. Bergeron netted the tying goal in the final minute of regulation, and in overtime, he busted a 4-4 tie to launch the Bruins into the second round.

Bergeron’s defensive play has been equally important to the Bruins, and on Wednesday, he was named a finalist for the Selke Trophy as the league’s best defensive forward. Detroit’s Pavel Datsyuk and Chicago’s Jonathan Toews are the other finalists. Bergeron won the award last season for the first time in his career.
