Barry Trotz Compares Bruins’ Top Line To Penguins’ Sidney Crosby Line

The New York Islanders did a fine job containing the Pittsburgh Penguins’ top line in the first round of the playoffs, only to be met with an even better top unit against the Boston Bruins. And the Isles learned the hard way just how potent the Bruins’ top line can be. In Boston’s Game 1 win on Saturday, David Pastrnak recorded a hat trick, while that unit — Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron, in particular — absolutely smothered the Islanders.
