It’s a night full of milestones at TD Garden!
In the second period, Torey Krug became the Bruins' American-born assists leader; on the same goal, David Backes recorded the 300th assist of his career.
Early in the third, David Krejci added a milestone of his own: he recorded the 600th point of his NHL career, scoring the Bruins’ third goal of the evening.
The goal extended Krejci’s point streak to eight games, as he continues to roll on a line with David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand.
Per Jack Edwards on the broadcast, Krejci has played in 804 NHL games. That makes him a career 0.75 point-per-game player.
Only Ovechkin, Malkin, and Wheeler have more points than David Krejci in his 2004 draft class.— Chris Abraham (@CrzyCanucklehed) December 21, 2018
Unless Andrew Ladd got 68 points tonight
Not bad for a guy who’s pretty frequently dismissed by (certain) Bruins fans as overrated and overpaid. WRONG.
Anyways, congrats to Krejci. The Bruins lead Anaheim 3-0 in the third period.
