Goal 2: Brad Marchand’s wrister vs. Islanders
Boston and New York were scoreless in the second period at TD Garden when the B’s went on the power play. Torey Krug found Marchand as he entered the offensive zone and the winger wristed a shot past Islanders netminder Jaroslav Halak.

Goal 3: Swift puck movement gets David Krejci goal vs. Coyotes
The Bruins cemented their victory over the lowly ‘Yotes with a nice power-play goal by Krejci. Boston had a 5-on-3 power play early in the third period and used crisp puck movement to extend its lead to three. David Pastrnak slid the puck to Marchand, who dropped it off to Patrice Bergeron. Bergeron slipped it right back to Marchand who shot a cross-ice pass to Krejci for an easy one-timer.
