David Pastrnak’s Backhand Goal Gives Bruins First-Period Lead In Ottawa


Boston Bruins forward David Pastrnak is emerging as one of the NHL’s young, dynamic stars.

Pastrnak returned to the ice Thursday in Ottawa after missing two games due to injury and picked up right where he left off. The 20-year-old got the Bruins on the board first with a spinning, backhand goal in the first period.

Berkshire Bank Foundation

During the 2016-2017 regular season, Berkshire Bank Foundation will donate $100 for each Bruins assist to three local non-profit organizations. Click here to see official rules.

As of March 30, the Berkshire Bank Foundation has raised $11,500 for Cradles to Crayons, which provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive -- at home, at school and at play.

Earlier this season, the foundation raised $10,000 for Soldier On, a private nonprofit organization committed to ending veteran homelessness, and $12,100 for Birthday Wishes, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide birthday parties to children experiencing homelessness.
