BOSTON — David Pastrnak began 2020 right where he left off in 2019.
The Bruins winger scored the first goal of the decade for Boston in the second period of Thursday’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets at TD Garden.
The B’s found themselves on a power play when Jake DeBrusk drew a trip with 8:58 left in the frame. Patrice Bergeron won the face-off and got the puck to Torey Krug who fed it to Pastrnak for a one-timer from the point.
