On a pair of power-play goals, the Hurricanes took the 2-0 lead into the second intermission before Brad Marchand put the Bruins on his back in the third period.

The Bruins forward lit the lamp 63 seconds into the final frame after bench boss Jim Montgomery mixed up the lines in an attempt to spark the offense and it worked.

Trent Frederic joined Marchand and Charlie Coyle to begin the third while David Pastrnak was bumped down to skate with Pavel Zacha and Jake DeBrusk.

Marchand scored his second goal of the game less than six minutes after he cut the lead in half to tie the game at two.

Unfortunately, the comeback fell short when Jordan Martinook beat Linus Ullmark five-hole at 17:33 in the third.

— Marchand moved into fifth overall, tied with Bruins legend Ray Bourque with 395 goals in his career.

— Frederic assisted on both of Marchand’s goals for his sixth multi-point game of the season.

— Martinook scored the game-winner for the Hurricanes. It was his seventh goal of the season.

FanDuel Sportsbook set the odds that Marchand would score two goals in the game at +1300. The Bruins captain cleared those odds with his 22nd and 23rd goals of the season in the third period. A $100 wager on Marchand would have netted a $1,400 total payout.

The Bruins won’t have any time to rest as they head north of the border to take on the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night. Puck drop from Canadian Tire Centre is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET, and you can catch all the action on NESN after an hour of pregame coverage.
