The Boston Bruins are completely dominating the Toronto Maple Leafs through the first two games of their playoff series, and they can definitely thank forward David Pastrnak.
Pastrnak has 9 points in the the series so far and set a new NHL record with his 6 point performance last night.
The 21 year old became the youngest player in NHL history to record 6+ points in a playoff game, passing Wayne Gretzky's previous record which he set at the age of 22 in 1983.
It's a beautiful thing right now, especially considering that all three of Pastrnak, Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron are signed long term at affordable deals.
