Bruins Notebook: David Pastrnak cleared to make season debut against Capitals

Bruins Notebook: David Pastrnak cleared to make season debut against Capitals”

Chara scored a goal and had an assist in the Capitals' 6-3 win over the Islanders.

In Monday's rematch, the Caps will certainly be looking for a better start.

Rask allowed three goals on the Capitals' first 12 shots, but blocked the next 19 shots.

David Pastrnak, who tied Ovechkin for the most goals in the league last season, made his season debut following off-season surgery to fix a torn labrum in his right hip. "He kept us in it early, and we got some timely goals". His second-period goal extended the Capitals' lead to 5-3 and caused his teammates to swarm him in celebration. A two-time Stanley Cup victor who helped eliminate Washington from the playoffs in back-to-back seasons, Schultz is now not only Brian MacLellan's best offseason addition, but arguably the most effective Capitals blueliner of this young season.

Nicklas Backstrom had a goal and an assist, Trevor van Riemsdyk hit the target for the first time in the Capitals uniform and Richard Panik scored on the power play. Washington rookie goalie Vitek Vanecek is 4-0-2 through the first six starts of his National Hockey League career.

A trademark of Peter Laviolette-coached clubs is activation and production from the defensemen. "These are two really good teams playing for two points that are going to be out there to grab, so I am going to prepare the same way just as I have been preparing for many years and many games".

At first glance, they are right. I think we had many practices against each other and we both compete pretty hard.

And we are not even 10 games into the season yet.

This will be the first of eight head-to-heads with the Capitals this year, and the start of what will be a four-game road trip for the Bruins, with a two-game set in Washington up first before a two-game trip to Philly. He has two goals and four assists in his first eight games in the red white and blue, and is now riding a three-game point streak.

"We have to do our jobs", Chara said. "I'm not going to put an emphasis on [the shot disparity]". When asked if he's proven he can still be a regular player rather than the spare part the Bruins saw him as being, Chara said: "I'm just trying to focus on trying to help this team as best I can". I give our guys a lot of credit for battling the way they have through some adversity here and collecting points. "But at the same time, we have something that is very deep, goes far back and we'll cherish those memories". In addition to Schultz's dramatic game-winner against the Isles on Tuesday, Daniel Sprong tied the game late in the second period with a wicked wrister to the top shelf.
