Not sure David Pastrnak even knows who Christopher Columbus is, but he sure dominated on his day Monday.  Pastrnak won the game for the Bruins scoring all four goals on five shots.  Two of those goals were on the power play, he chipped in two penalty minutes, and finished +1.  I generally don't like to lead off posts talking about superstars, but I feel obligated to give Pasta props for a four goal game.  The top seven going into the season were pretty clear for me but who was eighth was a debate.  I ultimately decided on Draisaitl but went with Pastrnak in the nine spot.  So far, so good.  Look for the Bruins top line to dominate on a nightly basis.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
Long time readers know that I've long been a fan of Bo Horvat's game.  Horvat scored two goals on four shots with two PIM in the 4-0 win over the Ducks on Monday, getting him to 23+25 on the season.  The big deal here is that Horvat is averaging almost three shots per game, now a massive jump from previous years where he was below 2.5.  He also has 29 PIM, a career high.  Look, Horvat is never going to be a fantasy superstar.  He's destined to be the #2 center in Vancouver behind Pettersson.  However, now that there are other young players blossoming around him, his quality of teammate is so much better that his offense should continue to improve.  Horvat is on pace for over 60 points, and I wouldn't be surprised if we see him in the 70-80 range once he enters his prime in a year or two.  In dynasties, he's a guy I'd target because while he's established himself over the last five seasons, the best is yet to come.  For a look at all of the trades from yesterday, read here.
