From Eric Duhatschek at the Globe & Mail:
Still, there was nothing in Bergenheim’s modest regular-season resume (14 goals, 15 assists in 80 games) to suggest that he would be one of the scoring stars of the first half of the 2011 playoffs. And yet, there he is, with seven goals in 11 games, as the Lightning are through to the conference final and await the winner of the Boston Bruins-Philadelphia Flyers’ series.
Bergenheim is a thoughtful man and that comes through on a conference call, when he is asked to explain what accounts for his improved scoring. He begins by saying that he’d had one run like this before - when he scored a career-high 15 in his next-to-last season with the Islanders and he started to feel some confidence around the net in the final two months.
“I’m older and I understand what we’re doing right as a line and why I’m getting these chances,” said Bergenheim.
When asked to explain further, Bergenheim said there were two - no three reasons - to explain his scoring breakthrough.
