Bruins 3-1 Win Over the Philadelphia Flyers in GIFs

In the Bruins' third win in as many games, David Pastrnak was undoubtedly the afternoon's first star.

This game got off to a feisty start after a heavy hit on Daniel Paille caused Adam McQuaid to drop the gloves.

McQuaid got an instigator penalty and the automatic ten minute misconduct that comes with it.

Later in the first period, Flyers' starting goaltender Steve Mason left the game with a leg injury.

David Pastrnak, the youngest player in the NHL at age 18, got his first NHL goal at 11:23 of the first period on the power play on the rebound of a Torey Krug shot.

The Bruins were out-shot 8-4 in the second period, and 9-4 in the third, but Tuukka Rask was solid in net for the Bruins, and four of Boston's third period shots resulted in goals. Pastrnak made it 2-0 five minutes into the third period on a beautiful passing play with David Krejci to get his second career NHL goal.

With Adam McQuaid in the box again, Loui Eriksson set up Chris Kelly for a shorthanded goal to put the Bruins up 3-0.

Despite killing off two straight penalties in the third period, McQuaid's third penalty and Philadelphia's sixth power play of the game resulted in the Flyers first and only goal from Claude Giroux.

With mere seconds left in the game, Pastrnak had the puck with a wide open net in the offensive zone, but he waited one second too long to shoot the puck. He missed the chance at his first career hat trick by one second, but two goals is pretty good, too.
