The United States men’s ice hockey team was unable to bring home a medal from Sochi, but there will be plenty of Olympic colors on display at Bruins practice in Wilmington this week. Patrice Bergeron captured gold with Canada, Loui Eriksson earned silver with Sweden and Tuukka Rask took bronze with Team Finland.
Bergeron was as solid as ever for the gold winning Canadians, registering two assists with a plus-4 in the tournament and giving the country great stability on the first line with Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz.
Canada beat Sweden, 3-0, Sunday to capture the gold.
Rask was perhaps the most impressive Bruins player in Sochi, posting a .938 save percentage while going 3-1.
