It looks like Boston Bruins star David Pastrnak decided to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving with his linemates - Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand - on Monday, because the forward gave fans four goals to be thankful for in the team’s 4-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks.
Here are each of his tallies.

The first goal came while the Bruins were on the man advantage. A nifty pass from Patrice Bergeron fed a wide-open Pastrnak.
The second marker came off of a nice steal by Marchand. The takeaway led to a two-on-one that Pastrnak finished off with a one-timer.
Goal No. 3 was the result of a quick reaction by the Bruins’ winger off of a face-off.
The Marchand-Pastrnak connection returned once again for his fourth. Marchand was able to draw Ducks defenceman Josh Manson in while Pastrnak worked Hampus Lindholm for positioning in front of the net, leading to an easy tap-in.
If you’ve been keeping track, Pastrnak became the third player to score four goals this season, joining James Neal and Anthony Mantha.

Pastrnak’s stellar performance was also great if you had him on your fantasy team. Most guys don’t get four goals in a week, let alone before 4:00 p.m. on a Monday.
With the win, Boston improved to 5-1-0 on the season.
