Brad Marchand, Zdeno Chara Put Bruins Ahead Early With Help from Jaromir Jagr (Video)

NESN.com staff will pick the two or three best Amica Coverage Plays of the previous week for games played from Friday night to Thursday night. Voting will begin every Friday morning and conclude on Monday. 

The Bruins got ahead early on Saturday afternoon, but couldn’t hold the lead against the mighty Penguins.

Brad Marchand got the Bruins off to a 1-0 lead off an assist from Zdeno Chara. Tuukka Rask also got credited with an assist on the goal.

Jaromir Jagr deserves credit as well, as he took the Penguin defenders’ attention off Marchand and opened up lane for the Boston left wing.

Check out Andy Brickley‘s breakdown of the play in the video above.
