While the Boston Bruins’ deadline role has yet to be determined, their future is looking pretty good.
Forward David Pastrnak, in his second NHL season, provided plenty of offense against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday, starting with a first-period goal on a penalty shot that beat goalie Marc-Andre Fleury under the right pad.
Pastrnak wasn’t done there, capitalizing on an offensive zone turnover by Pens defenseman Olli Maatta.
The tally was Pastrnak’s eighth of the season, marking the third time in his short career he's scored twice in a game.
