BOSTON (CBS) — Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk has had a somewhat frustrating time in the NHL’s bubble in Toronto. He took those frustrations out on his stick midway through Wednesday’s Game 1 against the Carolina Hurricanes.
After hitting the post roughly 200 times over the first 30 minutes of the game (rough estimate, of course), DeBrusk decided it was time to get some new lumber. As you can see here, he put his goal-less stick out of its misery:READ MORE: 2 Children Removed From Water After Dive Team Called To Search Brockton Park

DeBrusk’s crankiness was not because of the 11 a.m. start to Game 1. He squandered three golden scoring opportunities during the first two periods, leading to his Bo Jackson impression. In addition to missing an open net in the clip above, he also hit a post earlier in the frame. Add on a bad pass on a potential Boston 3-on-1, and it’s been a pretty irritating Wednesday afternoon for DeBrusk so far.MORE NEWS: Needham Students Get COVID Shot At Student Vaccination Clinics
So far in the NHL’s restart, DeBrusk has just one goal in his four games. He finished with three shots on goal in his 25:24 of ice time Wednesday, which the Bruins won 4-3 in overtime.
