The King of Nova Scotia

What a jerk that guy is.

Brad Marchand has 3 2-goal playoff games under his belt after Monday's performance.

His first multi-goal playoff game was April 30, 2011. Game 1 against Philly, in Philly. He scored the 5th and 6th goal of that 7-3 win. Krejci got the Bruins out in front early, and by the time Brad put that 5th goal behind Boucher in the second, the Flyers had just about had it. In came Bobrovsky. Marchand took a stupid penalty and the Flyers scored on the powerplay, but then Brad Marchand scored the 6th Bruins goal of the night. On Bobrovsky. 2 goals, 2 goalies.

Brad Marchand's second multi-goal playoff game is one we're all going to remember for a long time. It was June 15, 2011. The location? Vancouver, British Columbia. In the biggest game in a long long time the Bruins took on the Canucks in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, a game that teeters on the edge of reality and myth. Bergeron opened the scoring in that one, and by the end of the night Marchand scored 1 on Luongo in the second, and finished it off with an Empty-Netter in the third. 2 goals, 2 goalies (Empty Net is the worst goalie ever, you see).

The third is of course Monday night. The first goal involved picking off a Crosby pass at the Boston blue line, skating fast enough to get a mini-breakaway, and sniping one 30 seconds into the game. A couple more people came to the goal-scoring party, and by the time Brad Marchand was scoring his second of the period, Tomas Vokoun had been pulled in favor of Marc-Andre Fleury. 2 goals, 2 goalies.

So what's the takeaway here? If your team is playing against the Bruins at home, don't pull your goalie if Brad Marchand has already scored.

You're just setting yourself up for heartbreak.
