BOSTON – He is the other Bruins stopper. Not the 6-foot-9 all-encompassing mountain that is Zdeno Chara, but the reigning (and likely repeat) Selke Trophy winner and the “underrated” thorn in the Leafs side. “I think hes got to be one of the best two-way forwards in the game,” Tyler Bozak remarked to TSN.ca. “He doesnt do flashy stuff at all, but its like he never makes a wrong play. He always does the right thing. Its hard for him to make mistakes I guess.” “Hes a guy that can hurt you offensively, but at the same time hes going to frustrate you on the defensive end,” added Ryan OByrne, a frequent opponent as a former member of the Montreal Canadiens. Patrice Bergeron doesnt command the seismic attention of Chara, but remains as significant a detriment to the Maple Leafs chances of success in a first round series with Boston, set to continue with Game 2 on Saturday evening at TD Garden. A determined and pesky presence at both ends of the rink, Bergeron is an all-around pain to deal with, because as Bozak points out, “theres not really an aspect of his game that he lacks”. “Hes one of those guys that does everything well really,” Jay McClement, a strong defensive pivot himself, noted. “Hes good at faceoffs and hes always in the conversation for the Selke every year and for good reason.” While he did not score or manage a point in the Bruins dominant Game 1 win on Wednesday night, the 27-year-old draped himself over Torontos top line of Bozak, Phil Kessel, and James van Riemsdyk, Kessel, most prominently, held off the scoreboard for the fifth time in five meetings with Boston this season. “He plays the game honest,” said Bozak, his unit rarely seeing a moment free of Bergeron in the series opener. “Hes always on the right side of the puck. He doesnt get caught in situations where he leaves someone out to dry. I just think hes a really honest player.” “Hes never out of position,” OByrne opined. “He leans on you and he just doesnt give you much room.” Chara has made life unquestionably difficult on Kessel, the Leafs leading scorer who is still without an even-strength goal against his former team, but so too has Bergeron. Not overly imposing physically – actually listed at about the same size as Bozak – the native of LAncienne-Lorette, Quebec achieves his success defensively with determination and intelligence, instinctively scoping out the play with anticipation and effective positioning. “I think hockey smarts is probably one of the biggest assets you can have,” said Bozak, “and I think his are right up there with the tops.” “To play that type of role you have to be smart and read the plays,” added McClement. “Hes one of those guys that was probably a very offensive player growing up and then added that two-way part to his game.” Centering Bostons swift top line of Brad Marchand and Tyler Seguin, Bergeron is a challenging force on the draw, leading the league at 62.1 percent in 2013, including an almost unbeatable 67 percent mark at home. “He was someone that early in my career I had a really tough time beating and someone that I tried to learn some stuff from,” Bozak mentioned. In his first one-on-one battle with Bergeron – March 9, 2010 – the Leafs top line centre lost 11 of 17 draws, but ended up marginally ahead in their most recent battle, winning 6 of 11 clashes in Game 1. “Positioning, strength, his timings really good,” Bozak remarked of Bergerons faceoff skills. “I think another thing [is] he changes it up a lot, he doesnt just stick [to one move] and do the same thing … so he keeps you guessing and youve got to try and keep him guessing so its [kind] of a mind game.” Its those heady defensive traits and faceoff acumen that additionally make Bergeron one of the leagues most effective penalty killers, the Toronto power-play shut down in 10 of 11 opportunities in the regular season, 1-3 in the series opener, the lone goal ensuing with Bergeron in the box. Factor in his stealth production offensively, 35 points in 44 career games against the Leafs, including a team-leading four points in four meetings this season, and its no wonder that Bergeron is labeled as "underrated" by OByrne. “Hes not a flashy player,” said the Leafs defender, “but hes going to contribute offensively for sure and thats why he maybe goes under the radar a bit. “Hes a key part of that Boston team and maybe is a little underrated.” Harry Carson Cheap Jersey . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at .

Michael Strahan Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Deandre Baker Youth Jersey .ca. Hey Kerry, big fan of yours, just finished reading your book. I think that we all saw the Canucks/Flames line brawl just after puck drop. It was obvious that something was about to happen, even to the referees because the fourth lines were on to start. Dont ball-watch.Dont underestimate the fielder.Ground your bat.Dive.Such advice is perhaps stating the obvious to an alert batsman, but Mohammad Amir was anything but switched on during the final ball of the 79th over, despite Pakistans precarious position at 192 for 7, ahead by only 136, in their second innings in Sharjah.The delivery began with Amir winding up and lofting Devendra Bishoo towards the long-on boundary. What followed was a comedy of errors. Amir kept his eyes on the soaring ball, possibly admiring his shot, and assumed it would go for six. After a couple of seconds, he strolled down the pitch to greet his partner Wahab Riaz, who may have also assumed it was a boundary because he did not run either.Far away at long-on, Roston Chase kept his eyes on the ball as it began to descend over his head. He flung himself backwards on the edge of the field, caught the ball, and as he began to fall over the boundary he threw it back into play.ddddddddddddChase then got back on his feet and returned the ball towards the non-strikers end, interrupting the conversation about to take place two-thirds down the pitch near the strikers end.Chases acrobatics jolted Amir back to reality and he began to run all of a sudden, taking Wahab by surprise. Amir had about 15 yards to cover to get to the bowlers end but he lost his bat and did not dive as Jason Holder rushed in from the leg-side to collect Chases accurate throw and run the batsman out. Had they run hard from the moment Amir hit the ball, Pakistan might have got three. ' ' '
