The Boston Bruins took down the Nashville Predators with six goals from six different players. Players include David Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron, Chris Wagner, David Krejci, Danton Heinen, and Charlie Coyle. On top of the goals, Matt Grzelyck went on to get two assists of his own.
The Winnipeg Jets (24-16-4) come the the US to face the Boston Bruins (25-8-11). The Jets went on to win last night in a shoot out, but what got them there was a goal scored late by the Toronto Maple Leafs. David Pastrnak is slowly building up his momentum again as he scored in his last three games at least once. Pastrnak continues to lead the NHL with 32 goals (Auston Matthews 31) and has been a great forward for the Boston Bruins.
Along with Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron has been showing quite the comeback as he continues to put numbers on the board. On top of the veterans doing a great job, the young talent doesn’t go unnoticed.
What is also special about this young talent, is the fact that a few of them come straight from Massachusetts (Matt Grzelyck- Charlestown/ Charlie Coyle- Weymouth/ Chris Wagner- Wellesley).
Returning to the lineup tonight will be David Backes. Other returns would also be Torey Krug. Krug has been out for a short amount of time but is currently a game time decision.
