Boston Bruins forward David Pastrnak revealed a secret talent and stonewalled a world-class professional soccer player during a practice session Monday.
Pastrnak and Adam McQuaid, a defenseman with the Bruins, visited with AS Roma, one of the most recognizable clubs in Italy's top professional league, Serie A, during its practice this week at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass.
Taking a turn in goal, Pastrnak made a lunging save, without goalie gloves, to stop a penalty kick taken by Roma defender Kostas Manolas.
Pastrnak and McQuaid also did drills with defender Norbert Gyomber and hung out with Roma captain Francesco Totti.
Roma was training in the Boston area and playing local competition in friendly games ahead of a game against English Premier League team Liverpool FC in St. Louis on Aug. 1.
