NHL roundup: David Pastrnak's hat trick boosts Bruins

2022-01-14 07:34:39 GMT+00:00 - David Pastrnak recorded his 11th career hat trick to punctuate the highly anticipated return of goaltender Tuukka Rask as the Boston Bruins held off the visiting Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Thursday night.

Mathew Barzal scored the winning goal with 4:53 left for host New York, which returned to action after a 12-day pause and beat New Jersey in Elmont, N.Y.

Anthony Cirelli, Boris Katchouk and Brayden Point added goals and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 24 saves as Tampa Bay won for the eighth time in 12 games (8-3-1).

Vancouver's Tyler Motte and Matthew Highmore each notched a goal and an assist, but the visitors were 0-for-4 on the power play after failing on all three against Florida on Tuesday.

Connor Brown collected one goal and one assist and Drake Batherson tallied once for the Senators, who snapped a three-game skid in their first game since New Year's Day.

Pavel Buchnevich scored the decisive goal in the third period as St. Louis rallied past Seattle to extend its home point streak to 13 games.
