Impressive Numbers

from Matt Porter of the Boston Globe,

From the wizards in the NHL’s stats department, we find that entering Thursday, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand had factored on the same goal 329 times in the regular season:. That’s 135 Bergeron goals with a Marchand assist, 127 Marchand goals with a Bergeron assist, and 67 goals assisted by both Bergeron and Marchand.

Thus, Marchand factored on 329 of Bergeron’s 902 career points (36.5 percent), and Bergeron factored on 329 of Marchand’s 691 career points (47.6 percent).

By number of times factoring on the same goal, they rank third among active player duos:

487 — Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom (Capitals)

399 — Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry (Ducks, no longer teammates)

329 — Bergeron and Marchand

321 — Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin (Penguins)

291 — Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown (Kings)

They also rank second in Bruins history:

406 — Phil Esposito and Ken Hodge
