Finally, the Case of the Missing Pasta has come to its conclusion.
In his media availability this morning, Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy mentioned that David Pastrnak traveled with the team to Toronto on Sunday.
Earlier this afternoon, we got proof:

Still happy, even with his mask on.

A welcome sight, indeed.
While it’s good to have one Czech back in the mix, the other Missing Czech remains...well, missing.
David Pastrnak made the team charter up to Toronto and will practice today, per Cassidy.— Conor Ryan (@ConorRyan_93) July 27, 2020
Ondrej Kase did not travel. He will meet the team later.
As noted yesterday, Ondrej Kase will be subject to a 4-day hotel quarantine and daily testing once he arrives in Toronto.— Fluto Shinzawa (@FlutoShinzawa) July 27, 2020
That doesn’t really clarify much, but it does confirm that Kase won’t be available for the exhibition game against Columbus on Thursday.
At this point, Pastrnak should be fine for the round robin games, but Kase is another story entirely.
The mystery continues!
