Watch out, NHL. The league-leading Bruins have a new leading scorer on their hands.

We’re not talking about Garnet Hathaway or Dmitry Orlov, who were acquired by Boston in a trade with the Washington Capitals on Thursday. We’re talking about Linus Ollmark, who unexpectedly lit the lamp Saturday night at Rogers Arena.

With the Bruins hanging on to a one-goal lead and the Canucks net empty, Allmark put the final nail in Vancouver’s coffin when he cleared the area and found the backnet. The Vezina Cup frontrunner became the first Bruins goaltender to score a goal and only the eighth in league history.

After Boston’s sixth straight win, Brad Marchand joked A new task The Bruins can award Ullmark now that he’s shown his goal-scoring ability.

“I’m sure he’ll be on the next force,” Marchand told reporters, according to Athletic’s Flotou Shinzua.

For Ollmark’s primary responsibility, the eighth-year pro stopped 26 of the 27 shots he faced in Vancouver. The Bruins haven’t lost a game in which Ollmark has started between the tubes since January 29.

The B’s will try to push their winning streak to seven games Monday night when they visit Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers. Full NESN coverage of the contest begins at 7:30 p.m. ET.
