The Bruins’ special teams were a factor in Boston winning the game. The Black and Gold held Pittsburgh off the board on six power-play attempts and went 2-for-3 on the man advantage. Jeremy Swayman made seven of his 20 saves while Pittsburgh was on the power play.

While Pittsburgh was unable to capitalize, the Bruins did by getting one in the first by Charlie McAvoy, and the second-period power-play goal was David Pastrnak’s first of three.

— Pastrnak joined the 100-point club when he recorded his second hat trick of the season, the 14th of his career.

— Pavel Zacha, replacing Patrice Bergeron on the top line, notched three assists and brought his point total to 52 on the season.

— Bryan Rust notched a goal and an assist for the Penguins while logging 21:15 minutes of ice time.

David Pastrnak was given +100 odds by FanDuel Sportsbook that he would score a goal. With his second-period power-play goal, $100 bettors earned a $200 payout.

The Bruins will travel to St. Louis for a matchup with the Blues on Sunday. Puck drop from Enterprise Center is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET and will be aired on TNT.
