Patrice Bergeron shines bright in Game 3 win

Center scores on the power play and dominates in the faceoff circle

With Tyler Hawkins’s pounding drum beat and Dave Grohl’s scorching vocals weaved into a video montage of the Bruins’ greatest hits, checks, and smackdowns of this postseason, the feral music of the Foo Fighters whipped the TD Garden crowd of 17,565 into a good and proper frenzy by the time the Black and Gold took the ice for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday.

When Patrice Bergeron skillfully potted a power-play goal at 14:05 of the second period, taking Jaromir Jagr’s masterful cross-crease pass and pinging it off the left post and past Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford, the accompanying fog horn blast came as sweet music to the delirious crowd.
