Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron possesses the kind of all-around game that makes him a perennial Selke Trophy candidate. 

The 28-year old isn't especially known for his goal scoring, however, having broken the 22-goal barrier only once in his career prior to this season (with a career-high 31 goals in 2005-6.)

Bergeron is heating up as the playoffs approach, having scored four goals in each of Boston's past four games. The center extended that streak to five games during the first period of Thursday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks, scoring his 24th on a deft tip in front of the net.
