Hidden in a loss to a divisional rival gave the Bruins something that they haven’t had since the days of Glen Murray: a Bruin has scored 30+ goals in consecutive seasons!
Brad Marchand netted his 30th on the power play less than halfway through the third to give the B’s hope late in the game. (Here’s the recap.) The Little Ball of Goals became the 8th Bruins player in history to score 30+ in consecutive seasons.

Congrats, Brad! Keep ‘em coming!
