Bruins Dressing Room: Marchand Dishes On Habs

Published

The Boston Bruins maintained first place in the Atlantic Division with a dominating 4-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens last night at TD Garden. In the midst, David Pastrnak scored his fourth hat trick of the season and reached the 40-goal plateau for the first time in his NHL career. Brad Marchand collected one of his two assists on the night on a Pastrnak goal.

“We just caught them kind of flat-footed,” Marchand told BHN’s Jimmy Murphy in the locker room after victory. “When I got through, Pasta, he was kinda all alone, knew that if I got it over then he’d get it in. He doesn’t miss those plays. Luckily he finished it.”

Marchand collected his 47th assist of the season 6:59 into the contest on Pastrnak’s highlight reel goal that put the Bruins up 1-0.

“He’s really become an elite player in the league,” Marchand said of his linemate on the Bruins top line. “The fact that he’s able to continue to find ways to score when teams are really zoning in on him. It’s very impressive, there’s very few guys in the league that can do that.”
