from Steve Buckley of the Boston Herald,
After watching Patrice Bergeron score a first-period goal in the Bruins 2-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils last night at the Garden, an NHL scout in attendance began taking down notes.
“He’s skating . . . he’s strong on the puck,” wrote Tom Fitzgerald, a former teammate of Bergeron’s and now an assistant general manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins. “He’s hunting down the puck . . . he gets physical . . . he scores goals.”
And then, sounding more like the former teammate and less like the scout, Fitzgerald smiled and said, “He’s the old Bergie.”
