Patrik Berglund doesn’t get enough credit for being a big, solid player. Maybe it’s because he tends to get cast as half of a goofy duo with either Alex Pietrangelo or Kevin Shattenkirk in every Blues commercial ever made. Maybe because he’s Swedish, and they’re supposed to be neutral.
Whatever the reason he gets overlooked, Berglund decided to remind the Panthers – and everyone in Scottrade – that he means business:
I was listening to the game on KMOX in my car when the hit happened, and the sound of Kulikov hitting the boards was louder than Chris Kerber announcing the hit. That’s the sound of a job well done.
