Boston Bruins right winger David Pastrnak put on a show for the fans at the 2020 NHL All-Star Game by scoring four goals for the Atlantic Division team, and he also provided a few laughs on the bench.
The league tweeted Monday a video of Pastrnak mic'd up on the bench having a conversation with a referee. The Bruins forward is lobbying for a power play, and after the ref pushes back, Pastrnak reminds him he's wearing the "C" as Team Atlantic captain. The captain, of course, is usually the player who conveys his team's concerns with the referees.
Check out the funny exchange in the highlight below:

Pastrnak and the Atlantic team ultimately came up just short, losing to the Pacific Division 5-4 in the final of the All-Star Game tournament. The B's star still won the game's MVP award for his performance, which included a hat trick in the semifinal matchup.
The Bruins still have a few days remaining in their league-mandated bye week before returning to game action Friday night against the Jets in Winnipeg. Pastrnak entered the All-Star break with a league-leading 37 goals.
