David Pastrnak is good. We’ve known that for some time now. On Thursday night, the Boston Bruins forward just wanted to remind everyone that he’s good and has the hands to prove it.

Opening up the scoring against the Edmonton Oilers, Pastrnak delighted the crowd at TD Garden with this display of wonder on the power play as he made both Matt Benning and Cam Talbot look silly.

Pastrnak nicely scored 69 goals over the past two seasons and his goal of the season candidate against the Oilers was his fourth of the 2018-19 campaign.

“Every year you want to get better and you’re expecting to get better, you know?” Pastrnak told NBC Sports Boston this week. “It’s one of my goals to be reliable and to be trusted. So far I feel good and I’m trying to do my job in the offensive zone but at the same time play all over the ice. I’m playing with two great two-way players, so why couldn’t I become one of them too?”

So far, so good, David.
