Boston Bruins

Boston Bruins

  • Led by a hat trick from David Pastrnak and seven goals in total, the Bruins pulled off a three-game sweep of California for just the second time since they became a thing on the NHL schedule.

    It was an absolute pummeling of a finish to the trip, too, as the Bruins dropped the Ducks by a 7-1 final Sunday night at the Honda Center, and outscored the Kings, Sharks, and Ducks by a 16-5 margin over the course of the three-game trip.

    The Black and Gold’s only prior Cali sweep came during the 2018-19 season.

  • For Pastrnak, the three-goal effort was the culmination of what was a multi-game flirtation with the hat trick, as No. 88 scored two goals in both Los Angeles and San Jose prior to Sunday’s three-spot.

    It was good for the 13th hat trick of Pastrnak’s career, too, which broke Pastrnak out of a tie with Johnny Bucyk for the third-most in franchise history, with only Cam Neely (14) and Phil Esposito (26) now ahead of Pastrnak.

    Pastrnak is now tied for the 57th-most three-goal performances in NHL history.

  • But Pastrnak was far from the only B’s scorer to get it on the fun in this one.

    In fact, the Bruins got goals from five different scorers in this contest, with additional goals from David Krejci, Brad Marchand, Hampus Lindholm, and Charlie Coyle en route to the team’s second seven-goal outing of the season.

    Marchand’s goal pushed No. 63’s goal streak up to three games, while Lindholm’s bad-angle tally served as a nice bonus in what was his first game back in Anaheim since last year’s deadline move from the Ducks to the Bruins

  • In goal, Jeremy Swayman finished with saves on 28 of the 29 shots thrown his way. It was yet another step forward for the 24-year-old Swayman, who has posted four wins and a .926 save percentage over his last six outings.

    The Bruins victory also extended the team’s point streak to 14 games, with an 11-0-3 record since Dec. 11.

    Jim Montgomery’s team is currently set to have two days off from the practice rink as they travel back to Boston, and they’ll return to game action Thursday night against the Kraken.
