The Boston Bruins got their most lethal sniper back on Tuesday against the New York Islanders.

David Pastrnak returned after missing 16 games with a thumb injury. He'd been listed as a game-time decision.

The 22-year-old forward hadn't played since Feb. 10 after undergoing surgery, but he's still tied for the team lead in goals with 31. Overall, he has 66 points in 56 games this season.

Remarkably, the Bruins have gone 12-3-1 in his absence, although they had dropped three of their last four games entering Tuesday's action.
