What a difference Patrice Bergeron makes. After missing the first five games of the season with injuries, he made his season debut last night helping the Boston Bruins beat the Vancouver Canucks 6-3.

Bergeron scored a goal and added three assists.

His top line teammates also enjoyed having Bergy back. Brad Marchand added a goal and two assists while rookie Anders Bjork had two goals and an assist.

Backup goalie Anton Khudobin made 26 saves to get the win. Tuukka Rask is out of action with a concussion suffered in practice earlier in the week.
