When it was announced that David Pastrnak would be out due to thumb surgery I was nervous. Pastrnak’s hands are lethal weapons. He uses them to dangle his way through defenseman and score some beautiful goals.
It seems like Pastrnak is doing just fine. Ever since he returned to the lineup he has been amazing. In Pastrnak’s last 5 games he has 5 goals and 6 assists. You can’t do much better than that.
This has been such an amazing season for Pastrnak. In 61 games he has 36 goals and 41 assists. Imagine what he would have if he hadn’t gotten injured.
The Bruins will definitely need Pastrnak to keep lighting the lamp in the playoffs. If he goes cold the team will be in major trouble.
This season has proven that David Pastrnak was worth the investment. The team signed him to a 6 year $40 million dollar deal last year. This is basically a bargain for such an amazing goal scorer. Especially looking at some of the more recent deals of comparable players.
Bruins fans are hoping that Pastrnak will continue to lead the team in the postseason and hopefully lift a Stanley Cup when all is said and done.
