In a recent face-off between the Boston Bruins and the Nashville Predators, David Pastrnak displayed his artistic touch on the ice. He expertly executed a penalty shot, drawing parallels to the finesse of Luis Tiant's pitching style. This move left the opposing goalie utterly helpless and underlined Pastrnak's remarkable skills.


Adding to the game's excitement, James van Riemsdyk chipped in with two gritty goals, recognizing and appreciating Pastrnak's unique style. However, the Bruins are grappling with a dilemma concerning Pastrnak, as they grapple with the challenge of giving him more time on the ice. His restricted 17-minute appearance was largely due to the Bruins' struggles with penalties, leading to significant time spent in the penalty box.

Coach Montgomery is determined to address this issue by aiming to increase Pastrnak's ice time to 20-21 minutes per game. He acknowledges Pastrnak's crucial role as the team's top player, particularly with the absence of key figures like Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci.


To achieve this goal, the Bruins must enhance their discipline and penalty-killing abilities, ensuring Pastrnak can maximize his impact on the game from the ice.
