A very positive development unfolded Monday for the Boston Bruins.

David Pastrnak practiced with the team inside the Toronto bubble, where the Bruins will play all of their round robin and Eastern Conference playoff games. The 24-year-old right winger missed most of Boston's Phase 3 training camp practices as a result of being "unfit to participate." He practiced Monday in his normal right wing spot on the top line alongside Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron

Pastrnak even led the post-practice stretch.

Pastrnak and Washington Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin tied for the league lead in goals scored during the regular season with 48. The Bruins forward led his team with 95 points overall, while also being a major contributor to the club's success on the power play.

 

The Bruins begin their round robin schedule Sunday against the Philadelphia Flyers. They also will play one exhibition matchup versus the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night.
