Brad Marchand extended his point streak to six games in a big way Wednesday night.
The Bruins were down 1-0 in the first period of their do-or-die Game 6 against the New York Islanders when Boston was awarded a power play.
With 14 seconds left on it, Taylor Hall was tripped and the Bruins had a 5-on-3 advantage. That proved futile, but Marchand made sure the second penalty wouldn’t expire without a goal.
Matt Grzelcyk kept the puck in the zone and sent a cross-ice pass to a waiting Marchand who one-timed the puck past Semyon Varlamov to make this a 1-1 game.
