Bruins Game Report: Jake DeBrusk Nets Hat Trick in Boston’s 7-0 Win Over Kings


The Boston Bruins thrashed the Los Angeles Kings Monday night, beating them 7-0, and it would have been 8-0 had a goal not been called off in the first period. Jake DeBrusk scored Boston’s first three goals for a hat trick.

DeBrusk’s first goal came just a minute into the game, ripping one past Jonathan Quick — who was screend by Kings defender Mike Anderson — at the top of the right circle to give Boston the early 1-0 lead.

It looked like the Bruins took a 2-0 lead just two minutes later, but Charlie Coyle put it in illegally with his hand, forcing them to wave it off.

DeBrusk would find the back of the net to make it 2-0 though with six minutes left in the first, as DeBrusk intercepted a pass from Anderson in the Kings’ zone and walked his way into the slot.

DeBrusk then opened the second with his third of the night just a minute into the period, deflecting in a shot from Patrice Bergeron to complete the hat trick.

Boston continued to add to their commanding lead as David Pastrnak one-timed one past Quick at the point before Taylor Hall cashed in on a 2-on-1 chance just a minute later to make it a five-goal lead.

Erik Haula redirected a shot from Coyle halfway through the third, before scoring his second of the night three and a half minutes later, putting the score at 7-0 after some tic-tac-toe action with Hall which put the cherry on top.

The Bruins continue their six-game road trip Tuesday night, taking on the Ducks at 10:00 p.m. EST in the fourth game of the trip.
