Brad Marchand has scored some beautiful goals, but tonight’s in Glendale is pretty high on the list just for the beauty of his backhand.

From Chris (@CrzyCanucklehed):

BEAUTIFUL.

Marchand waited, waited, waited...and then lifted what was almost a physics-defying backhand under the bar.

Normally, goals like that end with the puck flipped softly into the net on the backhand; however, “soft” isn’t really in Marchand’s vocabulary, and he ripped that one into the net.

The Bruins led Arizona 4-1 at the end of two.
