The Boston sports landscape has seen its fair share of memorable moments.  Saturday night at the T.D. Garden was another one of those memorable nights that fans will never forget.

Bruins fans sang along to the National Anthem.  It was very reminiscent to Rene Rancourt’s anthem right after the Boston Marathon. 

The T.D. Garden was rocking last night as fans were allowed back at full capacity.  This is the first time since March 2020 that the Garden has been allowed at full capacity due to the coronavirus pandemic.


The entire city was electric coming into Game 1.  The Boston Red Sox had just beaten the Marlins at Fenway Park.  Bruins fans filled the streets and surrounding bars.  The crowd was ready. 

Saturday night, Boston felt like it was back.  Bruins winger David Pastrnak gave the crowd a memorable night that would almost blow the roof off the building. 

Pastrnak would score a hat-trick in the 5-2 win over the Islanders.  He was vintage Playoff Pasta and got the scoring going in the first, tying the game after the Isles drew first blood.


Pastrnak’s goal came with 24 seconds left in the first period.  However, he wasn’t done scoring as he would give the Bruins a 2-1 lead with 11:08 in the second period.  His first two goals came roughly from the same spots on the ice.  He fired two snipe shots past Islanders goalie Ilya Sorokin.

In the third period, following a goal from Charlie McAvoy, Pastrnak would complete the hat-trick.  His third goal put the Bruins fans into a frenzy.  His third goal of the game at 15:50 to make it 4-2.


Hats began to rain down from the seats and on to the ice.  It was an incredible moment for fans in attendance and watching at home. 

Taylor Hall would add an empty-netter to give Boston a 5-2 lead.  As the final horn began to sound, the Garden was delirious with excitement.  Dirty Water played over the loud speakers and on Saturday night, Boston was back.
