The Atlantic Division took down the defending All-Star Game champion Metropolitan Division in Game 1 on Saturday night at Enterprise Center.
And they can thank David Pastrnak for helping lead the way.
The Boston Bruins winger got his team on the board just 26 seconds after the puck dropped for a 1-0 lead.

Pastrnak’s second goal tied the game up to keep the Atlantic Division in it with 1:32 to go with a slick forehand/backhand move.
