This one was what you’d call “fun.”

Streamables tonight from Chris! Click on the link in each description to open the highlight if you’re on mobile and don’t see the embedded video.

Jake DeBrusk gets the Bruins on the board early with a PPG. 1-0 Bruins.

Shortly after DeBrusk’s goal, Shea Weber capitalizes on a JUICY REBOUND to make it a 1-1 tie.

The Bruins were gifted another power play on a pretty bad call a few minutes later, and we all know by now that the power play is David Pastrnak time. 2-1 Bruins.

Brad Marchand collects a loose puck after Charlie Coyle forces a turnover, and Marchand doesn’t miss to make it 3-1 Bruins late in the first.

Things didn’t go much better for Montreal in the second, as hey, it’s that Pastrnak guy again! 4-1 Bruins.

After a great stick check by Sean Kuraly, Anders Bjork gets in on the fun, and ends Carey Price’s night in the process. 5-1 Bruins.

Pastrnak thought he got hooked or held on an odd-man rush, so he stuck around to complain to the ref. Then the puck came his way, and lo and behold, he scored again! Another hat trick for Pastrnak, another goal for the Bruins. 6-1 Bruins.

Brad Marchand shares his thoughts on playing in a nice, quiet arena during the second intermission.

After some good passing and checking led to goals earlier in the game, Charlie Coyle gets one for himself in the 3rd period. 7-1 Bruins.

To put a cherry on top, Jack Studnicka gets his first NHL point on a nice pass to Danton Heinen. 8-1 Bruins.

And that’s all she wrote!

  • Hat trick for David Pastrnak
  • 3-point nights for Brad Marchand, Charlie Coyle, and Sean Kuraly
  • 1st point for Jack Studnicka

NOT BAD.
