Marchand Madness: Shorthanders, Part Deux

New, comments

Another go at Marchand's bread and butter, the short-handed goal.

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

In the first half of this match-up, we saw Marchand's signature Stanley Cup Finals moment, scoring a shortie on Roberto Luongo to seal Game 3 of the series. This time around, we're going to look at a couple more memorable moments with Brad on the PK in...

Round One: Short-handed Goals, Part II

2. Marchand vs. The Entire LA Kings Team, 2014

In January of 2014, Boston was in the middle of a Presidents' Trophy-winning season. But at the start of this game, the Bruins had won just 2 of their first 6 games of the new year. On the second half of a back-to-back, the Bruins welcomed in the Los Angeles Kings, who had nearly an identical record as Boston at the time. Half-way through the first period, the Kings took to the powerplay. But after Muzzin mishandles a rebound off a Rask save, Bergeron sends the outlet to Marchand, and the rest is history. Brad makes Drew Doughty look outright silly, before beating nearly every member of the Kings on the ice, and wristing a puck past Johnathan Quick.

3. Marchand Roofs It on a One-Timer, vs. CAR 2013

Brad Marchand may have been the Bruins best player in the shortened season of 2013. And he took little time to score his first shortie of the year. In just the B's 5th game of the year, Marchand already scored his third goal. His first on the penalty kill opened up their game against the Carolina Hurricanes, getting the Bruins on the board for a game they'd go onto win. While the moment itself may not have been crucially important, it was a sign of things to come, setting the stage for Marchy's banner year to date.

So will it be a one-timer roof job from a ridiculous angle? Or will it be Brad, undressing the Los Angeles hockey team and leaving everyone in the nude? You decide.
