Bruins’ David Pastrnak Joins Elite Company With Second 12-Plus Goal Month


Death, taxes and David Pastrnak goals.

The Boston Bruins winger has been lethal this season and leads the NHL with 24 goals to go along with his 17 assists, for a total of 41 points. Pastrnak potted his 24th tally in Boston’s 3-2 overtime win against the New York Rangers on Friday, and set up David Krejci perfectly for the OT game-winner for a two-point afternoon at TD Garden.

The 23-year-old will end the month of November on a high note with his second consecutive month of scoring at least 12 goals. And that feat put him in with some pretty elite company.

According to NHL Public Relations, Pastrnak became just the fourth player in NHL history to record 12-plus goals in back-to-back months, joining Wayne Gretzky (1981-82, 1983-84), Mike Bossy (1984-85) and Mario Lemieux (1992-93).

Pretty impressive.

Pastrnak and the rest of the Bruins squad will look to begin December with a win against their rival Montreal Canadiens at TD Garden on Sunday.
