Bruins winger David Pastrnak is absolutely cooking the Toronto Maple Leafs in their first round series.
Did someone order an entire plate of meatballs? Because that’s what David “Pastasauce” Pastrnak is serving up right now. And apparently maple is the secret ingredient, as Leafs are getting boiled and fried through two games.
On Saturday night, Pasta dished out another six points (six!), including a
hatty that sent Leafs players cracking their sticks over goal posts. That’s nine points overall. Meanwhile, Boston hasn’t even begun to warm the pot on these Stanley Cup playoffs. The Bruins are Olive Garden bread sticks right now. Toronto has to be waving their arms already saying “no more.”
It was an unbelievable showing by the 21-year-old Pastasauce, and in fact, he became the youngest player to ever shell out six or more points in a playoff game. That’s even younger than Wayne
Gretzky. Any time you beat him at anything, you’ve set yourself up for good eatin’, lawd Jesus.
Forget the Conn Smythe trophy, we want to see this guy eating spaghetti straight from the Cup.
Pasta is currently in his fourth NHL campaign, and it doesn’t surprise us that he’s becoming a seasoned goal scorer and superstar. He’s been cooking long enough with teammates Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron to come into his own. We’re clearly getting a taste of that now. It simply has to be unfair for other clubs trying to defend a guy when he’s as slippery as ramen. A real penne in the behind, probably.
Look at that. Come. On. Yikes, someone call Gordon Ramsay. We might already have a winner for the next installment of Hell’s Kitchen. Going into Game 3, Toronto (down 2-0) will need to seriously wake up and use their noodles if they hope to have any shot at getting back in this series.
With the hot performance that Pasta is currently putting on, he’s assuredly going to want to salt this one away for (almost) good on Monday night.
