Boston Bruins‘ David Pastrnak received the MVP award at the All-Stars game this weekend. And why wouldn’t he? He got a hat trick during the Atlantic vs Metro game. And a goal and an assist in the Atlantic vs Pacific final.
Fans show Pastrnak the love
The MVP voting was done online during that final game, with Pastrnak getting 36% of the votes from fans, followed by:
- Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk (27%)
- Edmonton Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl (20%)
- Ottawa Senators forward Anthony Duclair (17%).
When it was announced he won the MVP award, Pastrnak received some boos from the home crowd — no doubt due to lingering feelings from the Blues’ seven-game battle with the Bruins last postseason.
“If I was voted in by fans, I appreciate the love, you know?” Pastrnak said. “Probably wasn’t any fans from the St. Louis building who voted, but for the fans that did, I appreciate the love.”
“The first shift of the Game 1 against Metro, he back checked all the way to the goal line. I was like, where was this all year?” said Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy, who coached the Atlantic All-Stars. “Nah, he was good. He was chatting with the guys. He enjoyed the moment. They’re all good guys.”
Bruins fans can look forward to seeing the MVP on January 31st when the B’s take on the Winnipeg Jets in Winnipeg. Which personally I can not wait for it, this has been a long week for hockey fans!
