David Pastrnak is a great scorer.
David Pastrnak is a great passer.
David Pastrnak is a...fighter?
He was all three tonight, as Pastrnak recorded the first Gordie Howe hat trick of his young career with a goal, an assist and a fight.

His assist came on Brad Marchand’s empty-netter to seal it:
His fight came in the third period against Dan Girardi:
What a game for the young Czech.
What’s odd is that Pastrnak was suspended relatively recently for a high hit on...Dan Girardi.
Clearly Girardi has crossed Pastrnak at some point.
Anyways, a great night for the kid and a great night for the Bruins.
