The Boston Bruins may have failed to get the victory on Monday night, but David Pastrnak continued to establish his dominance over the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The Boston Bruins were unable to stop the offensive barrage they faced from the Toronto Maple Leafs. They lost on Monday night, but one player continued to be a scoring machine.
Pastrnak showed off his great ability on both goals. The first goal was the result of great puck movement on the power play. Brad Marchand rifled a pass to Pastrnak who was able to sneak it by Frederik Andersen.

The Bruins power play looked great with the unit racking up a ton of zone time. Pastrnak scored from his favorite place on the ice, the edge of the faceoff circle.
Pastrnak’s 2nd goal was the result of a great pass by Torey Krug but also an intelligent play by Pasta. Off the faceoff, Pastrnak was able to sneak behind the defense and then had a wide open net.
It’s impressive what Pastrnak has been able to do against the Toronto Maple Leafs. He is averaging almost a point and a half per game against Toronto. In 20 career games, he has 15 goals and 14 assists.
This has been an amazing season for David Pastrnak. The fact that the Bruins only have to pay him 6.6 million per year is absolutely amazing. That is an absolute bargain.
Pastrnak should be a Hart Trophy candidate and will be one of the major reasons the Boston Bruins make a run for a Stanley Cup. Even though the Bruins lost, I am confident that if Pastrnak is able to keep scoring, the Bruins will continue to win.
