Boston Bruins: David Pastrnak is paying off for the B’s

After inking a new deal this offseason, Boston Bruins winger David Pastrnak is having one hell of a season.

The $40 million man has shown that he was worth the big bucks. David Pastrnak has had a great season for the Boston Bruins and will look to spearhead the B’s offense as they make a run for the Stanley Cup.

Pastrnak is a humongous threat in the offensive zone. His hands seem to be made of the finest silk, as he can easily make a goaltender look silly as he dangles his way to a goal. He is deadly from the faceoff circle where he usually ends up rocketing pucks into the net off of one-timers.

Pastrnak has continued his scoring ways this season. As we are nearing the end of the regular season Pastrnak has 29 goals and 43 assists. That scoring output puts him in the top 20 in the entire league with 72 total points.

The 21-year old’s career is just beginning. He hasn’t even hit the prime of his career. His potential is endless. If Pastrnak can continue to score he may soon climb up the Bruins leaderboards.

Pastrnak has been a big part of the Bruins dominant first line. Even without their leader Patrice Bergeron, the Bruins, as well as the first line, have been able to keep on scoring, and more importantly, they have continued to win. When Bergeron is back, opposing teams will be shaking in their skates.

The Boston Bruins need Pastrnak to continue to score in the playoffs. In six games he has scored two goals in the postseason. The Bruins are going to need him to do better than that.

Next: Bruins steal one from the Stars

The ultimate way that “Pasta” can show the Bruins faithful that he was worth every penny of that new contract is to go out there and win a Stanley Cup, and I think this team just might be able to do it.
