Pastrnak (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision ahead of Saturday's Game 3 versus the Hurricanes, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.
Pastrnak sustained an injury late in Game 1 on Wednesday and was unable to play Thursday. The winger's injury isn't expected to be long-term, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports. Expect an update on Pastrnak's availability prior to Game 3 -- if he can't go, Karson Kuhlman would likely remain in a top-six role.
Pastrnak was deemed unfit to play and won't suit up in Thursday's game against Carolina.
Pastrnak's absence will be a huge loss for the Bruins, as they'll need to replace their top-line wing and leading goal scorer from the regular season. It's unclear as to the reason behind Pastrnak's absence, but in his stead, look for Par Lindholm, Karson Kuhlman or Jack Studnicka to enter the lineup.
Pastrnak registered a goal and an assist on three shots and chipped in with four blocks in Wednesday's 4-3 double-overtime victory over Carolina to open the first round.
Pastrnak got the Bruins on the board late in the first period when he converted a Brad Marchand cross-crease feed to knot the score at 1-1. He later set up Patrice Bergeron's winner late in the second overtime session. Pastrnak, 24, racked up career highs in points (95) and goals (48) in 70 games during the regular season.
Pastrnak (undisclosed) -- who missed Monday's practice session -- was on the ice for the Bruins' optional pregame skate and is slated to be in the lineup for Tuesday's Game 1 against the Hurricanes, Eric Russo of the team's official site reports.
The Bruins' top trio of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and Pastrnak wasn't especially sharp during the team's 0-3 run during round-robin play, but we'd expect the unit to get back into full gear now that the the first round of the Stanley Cup Cup Playoffs is at hand. The dynamic Pastrnak finished the regular season with 48 goals and 95 points in 70 games and is poised to see both first-line and power-play duty throughout the postseason as long as he's available to the team.
Pastrnak was deemed unfit to participate in Monday's practice session but is slated to be on the ice Tuesday, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports.
Pastrnak went pointless during the Bruins' three round-robin matchups despite putting 13 shots on goal and averaging 20:43 of ice time. If the winger doesn't start putting pucks into the net soon, Boston may not be long for the postseason and could be heading home earlier than anticipated.
Pastrnak (undisclosed) will suit up for Thursday's exhibition matchup with Columbus, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports.
Pastrnak missed most of the team's Phase 3 training camp but was able to travel to Toronto with the club in the lead-up to game action. The Czech winger will no doubt retake both his spot on the top line and No. 1 power-play unit and should provide elite fantasy value.
Per coach Bruce Cassidy, the Bruins have yet to determine whether Pastrnak will play in Thursday's exhibition against Columbus, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
Pastrnak practiced for the first time since training camp began Monday (he was late to join the team after coming in contact with an individual that tested positive for COVID-19), so he simply might not be ready for game action when Boston faces off against the Blue Jackets in a friendly match Thursday. His ice time could also be limited in the Bruins' first round-robin game Sunday against Philadelphia, but he should be close to 100 percent for the B's second round-robin contest Aug. 5 against Tampa Bay.
Pastrnak (undisclosed) traveled with the team to Toronto and will take the ice Monday, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
Pastrnak will practice with his teammates for the first time since the league's Return to Play started up. The winger won't have much time to get back to full speed prior to Sunday's clash with Philadelphia, though the fact that the Bruins don't have to worry about being eliminated could allow the club to ease him back into action.
According to his agent J.P. Barry, Pastrnak has tested negative for COVID-19, but he's currently under quarantine after coming into contact with someone who tested positive for the virus, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.
It's unclear whom Pastrnak came into contact with that has tested positive for COVID-19, but the forward was skating with teammate Ondrej Kase prior to traveling to Boston for training camp, and Kase is also currently being held out after being labeled "unfit to participate" Thursday. At this point the length of Pastrnak's mandated quarantine remains a mystery, but the Bruins leave for Toronto on July 26, so time is of the essence for the B's leading scorer.
Pastrnak (undisclosed) was expected to take part in Thursday's practice session but was deemed unfit to participate, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.
Pastrnak is coming off a career year in which he set new personal bests in goals (48) and points (95) and likely would have reached the 100-point threshold were it not for the league going on hiatus. While coach Bruce Cassidy doesn't seem concerned that Pastrnak will miss any postseason action, fantasy players won't be getting any official updates from the team due to the injury/illness policy.
The NHL announced Thursday that Pastrnak, along with Alex Ovechkin, has been awarded the Rocket Richard Trophy for leading the league in goals with 48 in 70 games this campaign.
There was some uncertainty surrounding whether Pastrnak would be awarded the Rocket Richard since it took him two more games (70) to reach the 48-goal mark than Alex Ovechkin, but the NHL ultimately decided that goals per games played would not factor into the equation. The 24-year-old winger is the first player to win the award in Bruins franchise history. He should be considered a consensus top-five pick heading into next year's drafts after setting new career highs in goals, assists (47), power-play points (38) and shots on goal (279) this season.
Pastrnak is currently tied with Alex Ovechkin for the league lead in goals with 48 in 70 games.
Although Pastrnak is currently tied with Alexander the Great, Ovechkin has reached the 48-goal mark in two fewer games, which would give the eight-time Richard winner a slight edge down the stretch should the NHL resume its season. Any way you slice it, Pastrnak has had the best campaign of his young career in 2019-20, having set new personal highs in goals (48), assists (47) and shots on goal (279) while averaging 18:58 of ice time per contest. Pastrnak should only continue to improve as he enters his age-24 season in 2020-21.
Pastrnak scored a power-play goal in a 5-3 loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday.
He's on a five-game, six-point scoring streak (three goals, three assists). Pasta's goal was his 48th and that moves him back into sole position on the top of the Rocket Richard list. But it's tight -- Alexander Ovechkin has 47 and Auston Matthews has 46. This could go down to the wire.
Pastrnak recorded a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Stars.
Pastrnak's league-leading 46th goal of the season gave his team a 4-2 lead in the third period and turned into the game-winner when Dallas got one back. He has four multi-point games in his last five and is as automatic as they come when setting your lineup.
Pastrnak scored twice -- once on the power play -- in Saturday's 9-3 loss to the Canucks.
Even in a loss, Pasta continues to put up good numbers. The Czech superstar now has 45 goals and 88 points through 63 outings. Saturday was his third straight multi-point effort.
Pastrnak recorded a pair of assists and went plus-2 in Friday's 4-3 win over the Flames.
Pastrnak set up both of Patrice Bergeron's first-period scores. The 23-year-old winger extended his career high in points to 86 -- he's been equal parts scorer and playmaker with 43 goals and 43 helpers in 62 contests. The Czech winger has racked up six tallies and eight assists in 10 February appearances.
Pastrnak scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Oilers. He also had two PIM and a team-leading five shots.
It was very nearly a different ending for Pastrnak, who found himself in the penalty box late in the third period with the game still tied 1-1. However, the Bruins killed the minor to send the game into overtime, where Pastrnak scored on a breakaway to secure the win. It was his 43rd goal of the year, moving him into a tie for the NHL lead with Toronto's Auston Matthews. Pastrnak had earlier set up Patrice Bergeron's breakaway goal in the first period and has extended his career-best point total to 84.
Pastrnak scored three goals, including one on the power play, in a 4-1 win over Montreal on Wednesday.
The Bruins' forward took the NHL goal-scoring lead with his three-goal effort Wednesday, and he now has 41 goals in 2019-20. His performance against the Canadiens brought Pastrnak up to 81 points for the year, tying his personal best from a year ago. Boston hosts the Red Wings on Saturday, and Detroit has limited the gifted sniper to just one assist in two previous matchups.
Pastrnak notched two power-play assists in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.
The 23-year-old is on another heater, recording five multi-point performances in the last eight games while piling up two goals and 11 points. On the season, Pastrnak has a dazzling 38 goals and 77 points through 56 games, and he's already only five points shy of establishing a new career high.
Pastrnak had a goal and two assists in a 6-1 win over the Wild on Saturday. All three points came on the power play.
The goal, which was Pastrnak's 38th, moved him one ahead of Alex Ovechkin for the NHL lead. Pasta thinks he can snipe 50 this season and who are we to doubt that?
