Brad Marchand knows how to shoot a hockey puck.

The Boston Bruins winger entered Tuesday night’s game against the Nashville Predators tied with Reilly Smith for the team lead in goals with eight, but he changed that just two minutes into the contest.

After a turnover by Predators forward Filip Forsberg, Marchand executed a nice give-and-go with linemate Patrice Bergeron to get the puck in the right slot. He then wound up and fired a mean wrist shot that snuck under the crossbar past goaltender Carter Hutton to give Boston the early lead.

Marchand also added a goal in the second period to give him 10 tallies on the season. Check out his ninth goal of the season in the video above.
