Brad Marchand's game-winner was beautiful

A perfectly executed play

NHL: Boston Bruins at San Jose Sharks Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Let us all take some time to appreciate Brad Marchand's OT game winner last night.

Everything about this play is beautiful.

First, the tap back to Torey Krug by Patrice Bergeron, who was locked up with a Shark on the play.

Next, the hockey sense by Marchand to fly the zone (and the trust in his two teammates to win the puck battle).

Then, the featheriest of passes from Krug to Marchand, right past a sleeping Joe Pavelski.

Finally, a beautiful move by Marchand to wait out Martin Jones (glad of traed) and go five-hole.

It was like a beautifully composed piece of classical music.

It was also the 400th assist of Patrice Bergeron's career. Amen.
