Patrice Bergeron stands out as one of the NHL's top captains, but he hasn't single-handedly guided the Boston Bruins to an extraordinary season.

Emulating the Leader

The team boasts a wealth of experienced players, including David Krejci, Brad Marchand, and the often-underappreciated Nick Foligno.
Fondly referred to as Fliggy or Uncle Nick, he's experiencing a remarkable resurgence this season, doubling his previous season's total in four fewer games.
He clearly recognizes the driving force behind the Bruins, as he expressed immense admiration for Bergeron.
‘'He's the model of consistency in this league. The way he plays on both sides of the puck and gets it done offensively and gets it done even more defensively. He's a guy I've admired for a long time. All of us do.''

‘'He plays the game the right way. I think that's one of the best compliments you can get as a player, and he does that. That's no surprise. He's a guy that cares about his craft too, and I don't think he's slowing down anytime soon.''

As a seasoned player himself, Foligno mentioned that having others in similar positions makes things easier, particularly when Bergeron and Krejci were absent from Boston's lineup during the first round of playoffs.
He went on to say:
''It's fun having some of the old guys in here. I think we realize how special and unique this team is being around a long time. This is something we haven't seen before. We're cherishing this. We're not going to let it go to waste.''

Although sidelined for the last 22 games of the regular season due to a lower-body injury, Foligno has had a strong postseason, contributing 1 goal and 2 assists.
