Who’s hungry for a historical helping of PASTA this April 14th for OTDIBH?

Well, that’s exactly what the fine folks in the NHL’s Public Relations social media suite are doing for dinner today, per their appetizingly awesome tweet that Bruins fans should need no reminder of:

THIS DATE (April 14th) IN 2018: (21 years, 324 days) of the became the youngest in NHL history to record 6 points in a playoff game in a 7-3 W vs. TOR. He bested the previous mark held by Wayne Gretzky (22 years, 81 days). #NHLStats

Wow, did David Pastrnak ever serve up a record-setting performance two years go in game two! Anytime you can best The Great One in any hockey capacity, especially in the playoffs, then you’re a special (perhaps even generational) player. And with it being against the Leafs — Boston’s seemingly perennial first-round playoff opponent — it was all the more deliciously satisfying.


Add a side of “Hat Trick” to the order just before closing time and you’ve got a complete playoff meal courtesy of perhaps the most electric player in the game (especially in Black N’ Gold) over the past few seasons — one worthy of the franchise record company kept with the likes of Espo & Nifty as outlined below.

Let’s just hope the 2019-2020 second season picks up sometime this Summer because what Pasta and his Bruins teammates have done thus far is nothing short of fulfilling, indeed!  


Here’s hoping they’ll all be having a nightcap right out of the STANLEY CUP soon to wash down (and celebrate) all that Pasta!
