Pat is BACK

Yes, there were nerves.

But butterflies were well within Patrice Bergeron's rights last night. He hadn't seen NHL action since Oct. 27, 2007, when an ugly hit by Philadelphia defenseman Randy Jones nearly closed the door on the Bruin center's career.

During his recovery, all Bergeron wanted to do was play. Last night, he finally got his chance.
