Brad Marchand broke out of his slump on Thursday night with his first multi-goal performance of the 2013-14 season, but it wasn’t enough as the Sabres defeated the Bruins 4-2.
The 25-year-old forward tied the score 1-1 in the second period with his second shorthanded goal in the last four games. His second tally came less than a minute and a half later to give the Bruins their first lead of the game.
It was an impressive performance from Marchand in what has been a disappointing season for him through 35 games. Earlier on Thursday, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said he wasn’t going to trade Marchand despite his recent struggles.
