SAN JOSE, Calif. — David Pastrnak, the hottest goal-scoring hand in the Bruins lineup, was on fire at the NHL All-Star Skills competition, too, winning the Shooting Accuracy contest.

He topped the eight-man field with a time of 11.309 seconds.

The contest requires shooters to rip off pucks from short range in the slot, eliminating the five dinner-plate sized targets stationed around the net.

Pastrnak, hitting leadoff, made quick, efficient work of the task and was never pressed by a field that included former Bruin Blake Wheeler of Winnipeg, Toronto’s Auston Matthews, and Drew Doughty of Los Angeles.
