As the Boston Bruins gathered for their final media session of the season, All-Star winger David Pastrnak divulged some disappointing news concerning his performance in the opening round series.

A Rough Beginning

During the media scrum at Warrior Ice Arena, Pastrnak disclosed that he had sustained a shoulder injury early in Boston's seven-game series against Florida.

How early, you ask? According to Pastrnak, the injury occurred on his very first shift in game one, and he never fully recovered from it.

''Definitely painful to not be able to give your 100% and play my game for the series — especially after the year I had and I've been healthy and I know what I can do when I'm healthy. It sucks.''

Thankfully, Pastrnak also mentioned that he doesn't believe surgery will be necessary, which is undoubtedly a relief for both him and the team.

Patrick Donnelly from Boston Sports Journal highlighted on Tuesday night that Pastrnak's injury likely happened after a failed breakaway attempt and a hit from defenseman Aaron Ekblad into the boards.

See the incident below:

Despite his shoulder trouble, Pastrnak managed to score 5 goals in the seven games against the Panthers.

Although it wasn't the same Pastrnak who delivered 61 goals and 52 assists during the regular season, Bruins fans still witnessed his unwavering determination.
