Bruins’ Marchand Scores Sick 1-on-5 Goal (VIDEO)
Tonight the Bruins' Brad Marchand made goal number 23 special, tying up the game against the Buffalo Sabres late in the third period by skating around everyone he could find on the ice:
A few things to notice about that goal. It was a backhander. He regrouped in his own ice before charging past everyone. He expertly took advantage of a line change. And most impressively, it was during a penalty kill. Wow.
That's Marchand's eighth goal in eight games. He's otherworldly right now. Here's a closer view of what it looked like to Sabres' goalie Chad Johnson:
Marchand missed his shootout goal, but the Bruins won anyway. With 31 games left, the Blackhawks may not catch the Capitals, but they could end the season as second best in the East and then make some noise in the playoffs.
