Pastrnak got himself a hatty


Jan 8, 2023

The Boston Bruins completed a three-game sweep of their West Coast road trip Sunday, defeating the Anaheim Ducks, 7-1, at Honda Center.

The Bruins improved their NHL-best record to 32-4-4 with the win, while the Ducks dropped to 12-25-4.

There isn’t a more gifted goal-scorer in hockey than David Pastrnak. And if there is, there isn’t one that is hotter than the 26-year-old Czech sniper

Pastrnak secured his 13th-career hat trick, skating circles around the Ducks and having a part in four of Boston’s five goals.

It was just the latest in a string of superb performances for Pasta, who has seven goals in the Bruins’ last three games, and had a direct involvement in 18 of Boston’s last 44 scores.

For a team that has the NHL’s best record and has won four consecutive games, there isn’t much more to say.

— Pastrnak solidified his spot as the NHL’s first star over the past week. His three-goal, one-assist night brought his point total to eight over the last three games.

— David Krejci has a multi-point night of his own, scoring a goal in the first period off an assist by Pastrnak and dishing out a pair of assists of his own.

— Pavel Zacha added two assists on the night to make it a clean sweep for the Czech line.

DraftKings Sportsbook set the odds of Krejci potting a goal at +350. The 36-year-old cashed tickets with his second-period goal. A $100 wager on the prop bet would have resulted in a total payout of $450.

The Bruins will return to TD Garden on Thursday after an extended break. They will host the Seattle Kraken for just the second time ever, with puck drop scheduled for 7 p.m. ET. You can watch the game, plus an hour of pregame coverage, on NESN.
