Glenn Ordway and Steve Buckley discuss Patrice Bergeron's place in Bruins history.

Buckley starts by clearly removing Bergeron from the "stratosphere" of Bruins legends like Orr, Bourque, Neely and Esposito, but makes it clear that #37 is special.

"He is a great Bruin," says Buckley.

Claude Julien offers some pretty high praise for his center.

"You'll never ever question his effort and never question his commitment, whether he has a good game a great game or an average game, you're always going to be able to rely on him."

Perhaps in no other area is Bergeron's presence felt than in the face-off circle, where he's practically a machine.

"Is there anybody better in the league at winning face-offs?" asks Ordway. "You talk about the difference between winning a game and losing a game, many times it really is the difference between being able to get that face-off."
