Patrice Bergeron Getting Extra Attention

from the Daily News Transcript,
"I don’t know if they can get any higher," says Sullivan of the expectations for Bergeron. "We think so much of him as a player and as a person. It seems like the more challenges we present to him, he just thrives on it. He gets that much better. We use him in all the critical situations, and he embraces the challenge, whether it be defending our net or trying to get a goal late in the game." Bergeron, who won’t even be allowed to legally buy a drink for another six months (he turns 21 on July 24), seems unfazed by the extra attention he’s getting and the increased role he’s playing. "Not really," says Bergeron when asked if he’s putting more pressure on himself now. "All the forwards got to step up and score more. We’ve got to get the results."
