There’s something about Vancouver that brings out the best in Brad Marchand.
The Boston Bruins forward was a Stanley Cup hero in Vancouver six years ago, and he’s continued to score goals in the Canucks’ barn ever since.
Marchand scored the game-tying goal in the third period of Monday night’s game with a power-play strike, and then he put the B’s ahead with an unreal effort.
He stole the puck along the boards, skated toward goal, put the puck between an opponent’s legs and scored on a backhander.
Marchand later added an empty-net goal to complete the hat trick. His 35 goals are two away from tying his career-high set last season and tie him with Sidney Crosby for the most in the NHL this season.
