Strong Shift From Bruins’ Second Line Leads to Brad Marchand Scoring First Goal of Game Against Rangers (Video)


Brad Marchand‘s struggles with inconsistency in the offensive zone were non-existent on Friday afternoon as the forward notched a goal and an assist in the Bruins’ 3-2 win.

Marchand got the B’s on the board with the first goal of the game thanks to the strong play of Boston’s second line. Loui Eriksson, Patrice Bergeron and Marchand enjoyed a breakout game against the Rangers, and their strong play in the offensive zone led to Marchand’s goal.

Halfway through the first period, Eriksson found Zdeno Chara, who zipped the puck across the ice to No. 63, and Marchand then showed off his quick release, firing it past Henrik Lundqvist.
