David Pastrnak Made History in the Bruins Game 1 Win

The Bruins took down the Islanders 5-2 in Game 1 of their second round series behind an incredible performance from David Pastrnak. Just four days after his 25th birthday, Pastrnak posted a hat trick. It was his second career hat trick in the playoffs, vaulting him into an exclusive group.

Pastrnak joined David Krejci, Cam Neely, Phil Esposito and Johnny Bucyk as the only players in Bruins franchise history with multiple career hat tricks in the postseason. Esposito is the franchise leader with four hat tricks in his postseason career, while Neely and Bucyk each have three and Krejci with two. Pastrnak is the youngest player in Bruins history to reach this feat, 299 days younger than Neely was when he had his second career hat trick in the playoffs in 1991.

Pastrnak’s last postseason hat trick came in Game 2 of the Bruins first round series against the Maple Leafs in 2018. Here are all of his goals from last night:
