DENVER – One person will make a huge difference for the struggling Boston Bruins – Patrice Bergeron.

Sure, one player doesn’t make an entire team, but the alternate captain makes this team tick the way it should when he’s in the lineup. Bergeron’s displeasure with not playing due to a lower-body injury is evident when you see him watching games from the press box to begin this season.

After the Bruins’ second-consecutive loss to the Colorado Avalanche, this one a 6-3 drubbing Wednesday night at Pepsi Center, Bergeron’s presence on the ice is greatly needed.
