Great win! A Pasta hat-trick back in front of a raucous crowd as well.

"It was just a nice moment to look around. Enjoy it. It's playoff hockey. That's what it's all about," Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. "I'm sure we'll feel that in New York, too, when we get there. But it was our turn to sort of take it all in here. So, that's what I did."
It helps when you have Pastrnak on your side, as well.
"It's a different sport with them in the building. It warms your heart and reminds you why you play the sport," Pastrnak said. "You could tell, right from the warm-ups, the fans were going to help us."
