Pastrnak scored on the power play Thursday and picked up a pair of assists as well in Boston's series-ending 4-0 win over Carolina in Game 4. The three points give Pastrnak 15 in 17 playoff games. His seventh goal of the postseason opened the scoring, a tip-in off a lovely feed from Brad Marchand. Pastrnak would add a pair of helpers before the final buzzer and will now get to rest as Boston awaits the winner of the Western Conference final.
Pastrnak scored twice, including the game-winner, in a 4-3 win Saturday in Game 5 against the Blue Jackets. Pasta fired seven shots on Sergei Bobrovsky and had a great game overall. He has been instrumental in getting the Bruins to within one game of this series -- he has two straight two-point games to lead the way. Pastrnak has 11 points, including six goals, in 12 postseason contests and will continue to fuel your fantasy team for as long as Boston remains in the hunt.
Pastrnak scored at even strength and tallied a power-play assist in Thursday's 4-1 Game 4 win in Columbus. It took less than five minutes for Boston to open the scoring in this one, as Pastrnak tickled twine just 3:33 into the first period of Thursday's road contest. He would find the scoresheet again in the game's final period, tallying the primary helper on Patrice Bergeron's second goal of the night, coming on a power play. The pair of points move Pastrnak to nine points through 11 playoff games.
Pastrnak could log time on the Bruins' third line along with Marcus Johansson and Charlie Coyle in Tuesday's playoff game against the Blue Jackets, Eric Russo of the team's official site reports. Though Pastrnak has managed three goals and seven points in nine playoff games to date, overall he hasn't been as explosive and dangerous as he was during the regular season. The Bruins are evidently hoping that mixing things up a bit could help spark the 22-year-old forward, but in any case, we suspect that Pastrnak won't be on the team's third line for long. Additionally, the 6-foot, 194-pounder is in line to continue to see power-play duty, which helps his fantasy cause.
Pastrnak scored a goal Saturday in a 3-2, double-overtime loss to the Blue Jackets in Game 2. The series is now knotted at 1-1 heading back to Ohio. Pasta snapped a four-game goal drought with the snipe. There wasn't a lot of open ice Saturday and Pastrnak had to fight for every inch of it. Overall, Boston's top line struggled Saturday against the smothering D of the Blue Jackets. The group will snap back, led by Pasta himself.
