Boston Bruins star David Pastrnak created a memorable moment for himself during Sunday’s shootout win when he scored the 50th goal of his 2022-23 campaign, the first time the winger eclipsed that mark in his career.
And while the goal itself was enough of an attention-grabber for Bruins fans, general hockey enthusiasts might have learned about the feat in a different way.
After all, Pastrnak’s 50th tally was recognized by Bleacher Report with a rather bizarre graphic.
Bruins fans obviously will understand the correlation of pasta being made in “Pastrnak’s Kitchen.” That’s just fine. However, the aspect that caused NHL Twitter to respond was the fact it looked nothing like Pastrnak.
Many joked how it looked more like Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Tampa Bay Lightning winger Pat Maroon, Billy Ray Cyrus and countless others.
It didn’t take long for Pastrnak to light the lamp again for No. 51. After his first goal gave Boston a 1-0 lead five minutes into the first period, he again put the Bruins out front with a 2-1 lead nine minutes into the second period.
