David Pastrnak of the Boston Bruins Discloses Inside Information Regarding His Conflict With Matthew Tkachuk…

Even though it happened three weeks ago, the altercation between Florida Panthers forward Matthew Tkachuk and Boston Bruins standout David Pastrnak is still spoken about.

Bruins' David Pastrnak Gives Inside Details On Fight With Matthew Tkachuk

In the third period of the Bruins’ spirited Game 2 road loss against the Panthers in their second-round series, Pastrnak and Tkachuk traded blows.

Following the fight, some information about what preceded the fight began to surface, and Pastrnak provided a wealth of commentary about the fight on his Tuesday appearance on the “Spittin’ Chiclets” podcast.

“He let out a bark. “I thought that if I were to fight him, it would either rile them up or give them something to scream about,” Pastrnak said to the hosts, Brian “Rear Admiral” McGonagle, Ryan Whitney, and Paul Bissonnette. “I thought, ‘How about we do it at home during the next game?'” He initially replied in the affirmative, but after returning to the bench, he stated, “No, we’re doing it right now.” It’s a hockey game, and the score is (6-1). Next game, let’s do it first shift. Both of us are players. You want to make that trade, right? He takes me out of the game for five, and I take him. And he responds, “No, let’s get started right away.”

“I felt that going with him would benefit me more than not going with him, as you would have to endure it for the remainder of the series,” therefore I was okay with going. That’s how I felt, then.

After informing Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery about what was going to happen, Pastrnak had an offensive strategy. But then Pastrnak started to doubt himself a little.

Pastrnak declared, “I was going to go so aggressive.” “However, I realised that Jake DeBrusk had warned me to be careful because he was going to land hard.'” He will arrive in style. You’re telling me I’m going to have my second fight right now. I thought to myself, “Oh my God, he’s going to come at me fast.”

Pastrnak, who helped Czechia win an IIHF World championship on Sunday, isn’t accustomed to fighting and soon found out how challenging it can be. He took a swing, collapsed to the ice, and Tkachuk punched him a few times.

Pastrnak declared, “I was going to wait for the first punch and I was going to dodge it, which I did.” “But, man, Biz, I had no idea how difficult it is to maintain equilibrium.” It’s absurd. After I ducked the first blow, I lost my footing. It’s really unfortunate.

Though Pastrnak has had plenty of time to process what transpired, he doesn’t regret confronting Tkachuk.

To be honest, Pastrnak was glad he had taken the chance. It was a good juice up, in my opinion. Unfortunately, they were simply so much better and deeper than us.
