Early in his career, Patrice Bergeron twice reached the 70-point plateau.

Injuries and role changes within the Bruins roster have held Bergeron to less than 70 points ever since the 2006-07 campaign, but he is on pace to reach the mark again.

It's amazing how much better things get when you have an offensive talent like Tyler Seguin on your wing.

"It's nice to have a guy like Tyler on my side," Bergeron said after yesterday's practice at the Garden. "He and (Brad Marchand) have a lot of speed, and obviously it helps to create some chances. (Seguin) has great instincts and great vision on the ice, so obviously it makes it easy for me."
