The Boston Bruins have had one of the NHLa€™s most dominant lines over the past two years in the trio ofA Patrice Bergeron,A Brad Marchand, andA David Pastrnak, a group that has put some video game type numbers on the board. Over the past two years alone the Bruins outscored teams by a 54-35 margin and attempted more than 60 percent of the total shot attempts when they were on the ice during 5-on-5 play. Individually, all three were among the leaguea€™s top-25 scorers in points-per-game this past season.

They not only carried the Bruins offense, they carried the entire team with their relentless two-way play.

Three games into the 2018-19 season and they are still dominating, and it continued on Monday in their 6-3 win over the Ottawa Senators. That game featured a hat trick from Bergeron, a three-assist game from Marchand (which follows a four assist game on Saturday), and a four-point day (two goals, two assists) from Pastrnak.

So far this season their stat lines are just as dominant as you might expect:

Patrice Bergeron: four goals, two assists, six total points

Brad Marchand: zero goals, seven assists, seven total points

David Pastrnak: three goals, two assists, five total points
