Hockey forward David Pastrňák performed a great gesture in the overseas NHL duel against the Islanders. With the score 4-2 for Boston, he could have shot into an empty cage, instead he passed to teammate Coyle, who did not hesitate and completed the hat trick. “He shouted at me to shoot,” said the author of three goals to the Czech forward.
“He yelled at me to shoot.According to AP, this is how happy shooter Charlie Coyle, who scored his first hat trick in the NHL against the Islanders, commented on the interplay with Pastrňák before the Bruins’ fifth goal.
And it was the Czech hockey player who helped him do it. He already had one hit on his account and could have added another, as the opponent played without a goalkeeper in the end. But when the popular Pasta was heading forward in tandem with Coyle, he decided to make him happy.
Although he had the opportunity to shoot himself, instead he served the disc to the thirty-one-year-old native of the American Weymouth, who achieved what he had not yet managed in the most famous league.
“I’m glad he did it and scored a hat trick. It was a great night for him and I’m happy for him,Pastrňák said in an interview on the club’s official website.
Boston coach Jim Montgomery also praised the moment. “That’s why I love working with this team. Seeing Pasta wave at Coyle to drive towards the goal was great. They are incredibly selfless and thoughtful players. It shows how much they love playing for each other.” said the coach, who was understandably happy about the triumph. The Bruins won the duel with a result of 5:2 and with 23 points from 13 games they lead the Eastern Conference.
