Bruins star asked coach for it

This is a perfect playoff hockey moment.

David Pastrnak isn’t known for dropping the gloves as the Boston Bruins’ biggest star and scorer. But in the Game 2 loss to the Florida Panthers, he decided it was time to go after the physical forward. And in video of the game, it appears that Pastrnak asked Bruins coach Jim Montgomery for permission to do it, and he seemed to get the nod.

At that point the game was over, so it was largely symbolic. Still, that’s a remarkable moment and perhaps it will change things after a 6-1 defeat. Pastrnak later said he was not afraid of Tkachuk.
