Eight seconds into Michael Del Zotto's penalty for slashing, the Bruins made it 1-0 when Patrice Bergeron sent a backhand pass from the slot to Pastrnak, who one-timed a shot past Gibson 4:18 into the game.
Boston made it 2-0 just a little less than a minute after Halak made the second of two stellar stops midway into the second period when Marchand stole the puck from defenseman Hampus Lindholm and fed it Pastrnak, who was coming off the bench. The winger beat Gibson with a wrister from the right circle at 11:38.
