Perron, 31, recorded the primary assist on the game tying goal as well as an assist on the first goal of the game and on the third from Ryan O’Reilly. Once in overtime, Perron made no mistake with a beautiful snipe from the point that went past Jonathan Bernier to hand the Blues a 5-4 victory.
⭐️⭐️ – Brad Marchand

Marchand’s five-point night marked his 10th straight contest where he registered a point which was a new career-high for the Bruins forward. Marchand now sits with a total of 20 points on the season thus far.
⭐️ – David Pasternak
Brad Marchand was not the only Boston Bruins player with a big night on Sunday against New York. David Pasternak, 23-years-old, finished the night with five points as well. Of Pasternak’s five assists, four were primary helpers en route to the win.
Pasternak currently sits as the leading goal scorer in the NHL with 11, but he can do much more than putting the puck in the back of the net for the Boston Bruins. His five-assist night proved how Pasternak can be a dangerous goal-scorer and an elite playmaker as well.
Before Sunday night’s game against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden, Pasternak came in with total of 18 points on the season thus far. After his five-point performance, Pasternak, a Czech-born right-winger, now leads the entire NHL with 23 points.
