Bergevins 1-0 shutout against Normal Community in the state championship game gave him 14.5 shutouts this season, which is a school record. He allowed 19 goals in 25 games and was selected to play in the Fourth Annual High School All-American Game on Dec. 13 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Pioneer Press freelance writer Eric Van Dril recently spoke with Bergevin, whose father Marc Bergevin played for the Chicago Blackhawks and is the general manager of the Montreal Canadiens. Q: You had a lot of success saving penalty kicks in the postseason. As somebodys preparing to take a PK, is there anything that you look at maybe right beforehand, or as they walk up for clues to where hes going to kick the ball? A: Its really difficult, in that sense, to try to read where a players going. You can look at their hands, or look at their feet whether theyre righty or lefty, how far they go back, where they [position] themselves to the ball, whether its to the left side or the right side. But it all comes down to that last split-second decision, of Well, am I going to go right, or am I going to go left? Q: I cover a lot of soccer, and Ive seen quite a few penalty shootouts. My stomach is always in knots for the players out there. But as a goalie with so much pressure on your shoulders, how do you feel in those situations? A: Its definitely nerve-wracking, but in goal Im very comfortable, and Im very confident in our guys who take the shots, too, because they hit the spot every time and they showed that throughout the postseason. source: http://westernsprings.chicagotribune.com/2014/12/04/boys-soccer-hinsdale-central-wes-bergevin-marc-bergevin-montreal-canadiens/

The Blues were 4-0-1 before that defeat and had taken a season high-tying three in a row on the road. St. Louis’ attempt to get back into the win column will come against a Nashville team that’s won six straight at home and is 10-1-1 there this season. The Blues, who split two home matchups with the Predators in November, are seeking a seventh consecutive victory in Nashville. They outscored the Predators by a combined 12-3 in last season’s three visits, but Nashville (16-6-2) has appeared far more competitive in its first campaign under Peter Laviolette. It had won a season-high four in a row – despite scoring a combined three goals in the final two victories – before a 2-1 loss at Carolina on Tuesday. Mike Ribeiro tallied his second goal in as many games with 4:46 remaining, but the Predators couldn’t find the equalizer despite outshooting the Hurricanes 15-6 in the final period. “There weren’t a lot of Grade-A opportunities for us. They were pretty quick to defense and shutting things down. We can be better, but we couldn’t catch them,” Laviolette said. Nashville got a tying goal late in the second period Nov. 13 in St. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blues-predators-preview-073521831–nhl.html
