When you break a Wayne Gretzky record, it's safe to assume that you've had a big night. Hello, David Pastrnak's Game 2 performance against the Maple Leafs. In Boston for a nationally-televised NBC showdown against a Leafs team the Bruins beat by a decisive 5-1 final on Thursday -- a victory largely...

Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy saved the modesty for another day when asked about his pivotal in-game switch that moved David Backes to the right side of the Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron combination in place of David Pastrnak. “Stroke of genius, huh?” Cassidy quipped. Genius because it helped...

A now 16-game point streak for the Bruins, extended by way of a 4-1 victory over the Canadiens on Saturday night in Montreal, has reminded you how utterly impossible it can be to stop the members of Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-David Pastrnak line. That’s just on their own, too. Never mind when...

A Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-David Pastrnak first line is unfair. But the Bruins, winners of their season-best matching fourth straight game by way of a 3-1 final over the Red Wings at TD Garden on Saturday afternoon, don’t really care. Matched up against a Detroit group that typically plays...

The Bruins, with an extra (but legal) skater, are a lot better than their recent results would tell you. Everybody involved in the process should certainly know this, too. But when their power play stumbles the way it did on Saturday -- the Bruins finished their 3-2 overtime loss to the Rangers...

It was after Thursday’s win over the Golden Knights that Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy stressed the importance of his team successfully drawing penalties. That was an obvious desire from Cassidy as an NHL coach (they always believe they deserve more power-play opportunities), but also made more...

What was the first big purchase made by Bruins winger David Pastrnak after signing his six-year, $40 million contract with the club early Thursday morning? “I got dinner yesterday for $8 at Sarku Japan,” Pastrnak, who arrived in Boston on Friday night and dined at the Cambridgeside Galleria, said...

In what’s been a hit-or-miss opening three offseasons on the job, and with the Boston fanbase undeniably split on their view of the front office, I always felt that the David Pastrnak negotiations were going to definitively tip the scales towards Bruins general manager Don Sweeney proving himself...

Just minutes away from the official start of training camp, the Bruins and restricted free agent David Pastrnak have avoided a holdout and come to terms on a new six-year, $40 million contract.

As is tradition, the Bruins are losing the PR battle. This time, it’s against restricted free agent David Pastrnak, but that’s hardly surprising. The Bruins have had all summer to hammer out a new deal with the winger that finished second among Boston skaters in both goals (34) and points (70) last...
