Video: Torey Krug makes a little history

May 25, 2013, 8:54 PM EDT

Boston Bruins defenseman Torey Krug has enjoyed a red-hot start to his NHL postseason career. If that statement isn’t dramatic enough, try this on for size: he’s done something that no other blueliner has ever done in the postseason. Not even Bobby Orr.

According to the NBC SN telecast (and countless others), the 22-year-old became the first defenseman to score four goals in his first five playoff games after finding the net with this howling slapper in Game 5 against the New York Rangers:

He won’t connect on 25 percent of his shots forever, yet that velocity indicates it might not all be a fluke.

    This kid is AMAZING. I really enjoy watching him play. Hope he can keep it up. Excited to see what he does in a full season.

      If the Bruins don’t bring the kid up full time next year there will be riots in Boston

      Watching MSG postgame and the MSG guys certainly did oddly enough…

    He might be the next Brian Rafalski. The similarities are there. Both from metro-detroit, undrafted, and undersized but with a solid offensive game.
