WATCH: Pastrnak scores hat trick in Bruins' Game 1 win vs. Islanders

Bruins

David Pastrnak is on another level right now. 

The Boston Bruins right winger led his team to victory Saturday night with a hat trick against the New York Islanders in Game 1 of its second-round Stanley Cup Playoff series at TD Garden. Charlie McAvoy and Taylor Hall also scored for the B's in a 5-2 win.

Here are replays of all three Pastrnak goals in the series opener. 

TD Garden increased its capacity close to 100 percent for the first time in over a year for Game 1 as Massachusetts lifted its COVID-19 restrictions Saturday. The fans were happy to toss their hats over the boards and onto the ice after Pastrnak's third goal.

Pastrnak's hat trick gives him a team-leading five goals and nine points through six games in this 2021 postseason run. The superstar forward also has scored in three consecutive games going back to the first-round series versus the Washington Capitals.
