NHL Barometer: Risers & Fallers

Jan Levine

Levine covers baseball, basketball and hockey for RotoWire. In addition to his column writing, he's the master of the MLB and NHL cheatsheets. In his spare time, he roots for the Mets.

This week’s article includes a hot center in Boston and a cold one in the desert, two lesser-known wingers, the King in charge of his throne and surgery for one of his Ranger teammates.

First Liners (Risers)

Patrice Bergeron, C, BOS – Four goals in a game doesn’t guarantee entry to the Risers side of the column, but it surely helps. The four tallies Saturday give the Boston center — who, at times, is more known for his defensive ability due to his four Selke trophies and proficiency in the faceoff dot — 11 markers in his last 11 games. In addition, with that output against Carolina, Bergeron became the seventh Boston player to reach 700 points in his career. After falling from 68 in 2015-16 to 53 points last season, Bergeron now has 32 points in 35 games after notching an assist Sunday.
