The first period didn’t go as planned for the Boston Bruins, but there was a bright spot.
David Pastrnak notched his league-leading 44th goal of the season to get the B’s on the board against the Vancouver Canucks. Vancouver struck first when Troy Steecher potted his fourth goal of the season 4:14 into the game.
Pasta knotted the score just under three minutes later on a slick breakaway, but the Canucks would light the lamp once more throughout the period to take a 2-1 lead into the dressing room for the first intermission.
