Everything you need to know from the Bruins’ 4-2 win over the Ducks in quickie form, with BSJ insight and analysis…

Box Score 


David Pastrnak leads the way: Against a Ducks team that only relinquished an average of 1.20 goals per game entering Monday afternoon, the Bruins struggled to get much going offensively from three of their four forward lines throughout the matinee contest. 

But when David Pastrnak is feeling it, the dynamic winger can hand you two points on his own. The 23-year-old forward might have been the only B’s skater to light the lamp against John Gibson and the Ducks, but quality was matched by quantity on Monday — as Pastrnak lit the lamp four times in what was a 4-2 victory for Boston. 

Pastrnak is the first Bruin to accomplish the feat since Patrice Bergeron scored four against the Hurricanes back on Jan. 6, 2018 — and is the 19th player in franchise history to hit that mark in one game.
