The Bruins added three in the second — two on the power play from Krejci , giving him a hat trick with 25:27 still to play — and one from Pastrnak. It was Krejci ’s first three-goal game since 2014; he also has had two in the playoffs. The Bruins have won back-to-back games since the trade deadline

The biggest was Nash, a six-time All-Star who has two goals and an assist in two games for Boston -- including one of each against the defending Stanley Cup champions on Thursday.

"I'm obviously happy to be on his line," said Krejci, who has four hat tricks in the regular season and two more in the playoffs. "He's a world-class player, and he's proven it the last couple of games. I know it's not easy, but they fit in really well."
