Audio & Video Emerges of Trent Frederic's Dad During Trent's Debut Fight with Bruins
Boston, MA - After a fairly successful All-Star break for the Boston Bruins (goalie Tuukka Rask said he would aim to return within the week from his concussion and David Pastrnak made a name for himself on the national stage with a skills challenge victory), the Bruins returned to action with a tight game against the Winnipeg Jets that ultimately resulted in a 4-3 shootout loss.
The scoring began with Boston's Patrice Bergeron netting a goal halfway through the first period off of an assist from Pastrnak and Brad Marchand. Winnipeg quickly evened the score with a power play goal from Josh Morrissey, but then Boston answered again with a power play goal of their own, courtesy of Pastrnak, which was good for his twenty-eighth of the season and was assisted by Marchand and Torey Krug.
In the third period, Winnipeg took a lead off of back-to-back goals from Kyle Connor. But Bergeron scored again off of assists from Marchand and Pastrnak, for his second of the game. On a 3-3 tie, the game was sent into overtime when both goalies held their own, including Boston's Jaroslav Halak.
It was not enough, though, as Boston fell during the shootout on yet another goal from Connor. It was a tough loss, but Boston hang tough with the Jets, who have the third best record in the NHL, so it's nothing to shake a stick at.
Bruins rookie Trent Frederic also made his debut in the game and while he played the least amount of time on the ice of any Bruin, he made his impact known when Winnipeg's Brandon Tanev enticed Frederic into fighting and the debut player easily held his own in the fight and made quick work of Tanev.

It was a splashy debut for the rookie and it could end up serving as a spark for the Bruins, who have yet to live up to their full potential during the 2018-19 season. They were back in action again against the Philadelphia Flyers at home with Rask hopefully returning to the net!
Trent's father might well have been the real star of that night, as is evidence from his excitement on recently revealed audio & video.
