FROM JOE HAGGERTY

It's just like clockwork that Torey Krug gets back on the Bruins top power play unit and they get to scoring right away. Super quick puck movement leads to a wide open one-timer for David Pastrnak from the face-off circle after a slick cross-ice pass from Brad Marchand one-timer from Pastrnak is particularly encouraging as it looks like he's not having any problems whatsoever with the shooting part of his game while playing with the splint on his left hand and thumb. The one-timer shot was hard, accurate and right on point, and it looks like he's back in midseason form with a couple of weeks still until the playoffs.

Five shots on net between Marcus Johansson and Torey Krug as they both look pretty decent in their return from injury after each of them missed a couple of weeks. That's an equally encouraging sign for the Black and Gold as Pastrnak's effectiveness coming back from his injury. Krug notched an assist on the B's go-ahead goal in the second period and that gave him his 248th career point, which makes him the most prolific American-born player to ever suit up for the Black and Gold. That's impressive given the history of the B's franchise and given that Krug still has plenty of ways to go in his offense-producing career.

Patrice Bergeron ended up in a scuffle with Lias Andersson toward the end of the second period after Andersson came flying in and left his skates while throwing a back-sided hit attempt at No. 37 in the corner. Bergeron sidestepped the hit and then threw Andersson to the ice, which set off a scuffle between both players resulting in penalties for each. It also touched off a war of words between benches as Zdeno Chara and Brendan Lemieux were screaming at each other with Lemieux mouthing the words "try me" to the 6-foot-9 Bruins captain. While it's clearly a bad idea for Lemieux, something tells me that Bruins President Cam Neely would approve of Chara taking a piece out of Claude Lemieux's kid.
