Brad Marchand earned three helpers in Monday's win against Ottawa.

Marchand had the primary assist on two goals by Patrice Bergeron and another on David Pastrnak's empty-netter. He has only been credited with three shots on goal through three games and hasn't found the back of the net yet, but he has compiled seven assists.

Brad Marchand recorded four assists in Boston 4-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night.

Marchand had hockey fans all over the world discussing before the game whether or not he should be suspended for instigating a fight with an unwilling Lars Eller last night, but that didn’t appear to bother the Bruins’ forward at all tonight. It’s a nice bounce back game from the Bruins after they got beat bad by the Capitals last night. They’ll be back in action on Monday night for their home opener against the Ottawa Senators. Marchand’s assists came on goals scored by Zdeno Chara, David Pastrnak, Ryan Donato and Patrice Bergeron (empty net).
Oct 4 - 9:48 PM

Brad Marchand racked up 19 penalty minutes in Wednesday's 7-0 loss to the Washington Capitals.

It was a rough night for the Bruins. Marchand took a tripping penalty early in the second period and he picked up the other 17 penalty minutes in a fight with Lars Eller in the third period (he receiver a five-minute major for fighting, a two-minute instigator penalty and a misconduct). He finished the night with a minus-2 rating, one shot on goal and one hit in 14:56 of ice time. There will be better days ahead for the Bruins, but they're going to want to forget about their opener as soon as possible.
Oct 3 - 10:30 PM

Brad Marchand acknowledged that his licking incidents went too far.

Marchand took a lot of heat recently for licking Ryan Callahan's face and that came after a similar incident involving Leo Komarov in the first round. The NHL spoke to Marchand in response to that to let him know that his actions were inappropriate and he's now acknowledged that he's "got to cut that [expletive] out."
May 9 - 2:52 PM

Brad Marchand played through a groin injury for the last six or seven games of the postseason.

Marchand was still a big producer in the second round with a goal and eight points in five games against Tampa Bay. Of course, it wasn't enough for the Bruins to defeat the Lightning, so Marchand will now focus on his recovery. He won't need surgery this summer.

The NHL has apparently warned the Winnipeg Jets and Nashville Predators about the consequences of licking an opponent ahead of Saturday's matchup.

Rule 75.4 (iii): "Any player who persists in any course of conduct designed to incite an opponent into incurring a penalty." Apparently the NHL has decided that anyone caught licking an opponent will be forced to serve a 10-minute misconduct penalty. So far Brad Marchand has gotten away with licking two opponents but the NHL appears to have had enough of his antics and the embarrassment they have caused.

It appears the NHL is ready to intervene in the licking scandal surrounding Brad Marchand.

For those who are unaware, Marchand thought it was a good idea to lick Tampa's Ryan Callahan in the face during Friday's Game 4 loss to the Lightning. This marks the second time this postseason that the Bruins forward has licked an opponent after he did it to Toronto's Leo Komarov in the first round. If the NHL would have gotten involved after the first incident, all of this nonsense could have been avoided but here we are again. It's possible that another incident involving Marchand could result in a fine or suspension. This has become an extremely embarrassing incident for the league.

Brad Marchand registered a pair of assists in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Marchand helped set up goals by David Pastrnak (power play) and Patrice Bergeron (shorthanded). He also grabbed the hockey world's undivided attention when he licked Tampa Bay forward Ryan Callahan. It's the second time this postseason that he has licked an opponent after he put his tongue on Leafs forward Leo Komarov's face in the first round. He did not pick up a penalty on the play, but it will be interesting to see whether or not the NHL decides to hit him with supplemental discipline. The 29-year-old has four goals and 17 points in 11 games this postseason. The Bruins will be facing elimination in Tampa Bay on Sunday afternoon.
May 4 - 11:13 PM

Brad Marchand will suit up in Game 4 against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday night.

Marchand was considered a game-time decision for this game, but his status was never really in doubt. He has four goals and 15 points in 10 games during the postseason. The Bruins will need to lean heavily on their top line of Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak if they're going to tie this series tonight.
May 4 - 6:46 PM

Brad Marchand (undisclosed) is a game-time decision on Friday.

Marchand missed Thursday's practice for what was described as maintenance. However, it appears he is working through something as Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy was the one to term him as a game-time decision. However, Cassidy added that he believes Marchand will end up playing, so consider him probable.
May 4 - 3:35 PM

Brad Marchand registered a pair of assists in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Even though they never had the lead in this game, the Bruins managed to keep it close. Marchand helped set up goals by Charlie McAvoy (1-1) and Torey Krug (3-2). The Bruins forward finished the night with a minus-1 rating and two shots on goal in 21:17 of ice time. The 29-year-old has picked up eight points in his last three games. He's up to four goals and 15 points in nine games this postseason.
Apr 30 - 10:12 PM

Brad Marchand found the back of the net and registered three assists in a 6-2 win over the Lightning Saturday afternoon.

Marchand was a major force for the Bruins in the first round against the Maple Leafs and he's setting the tone early again versus Tampa Bay. He's up to four goals and 13 points in eight postseason games this year.
Apr 28 - 5:56 PM

Lighting head coach Jon Cooper had nothing but praise for Bruins forward Brad Marchand.

"To be honest, what I have seen of him and what goes on on the ice he is a competitive you know what, you’ve got to love that," Cooper said. "Some of the greatest comments you can give a player is ‘God I hate that kid but I do wish he was on my team.’ Some guys get that." The two will get to know each other pretty well throughout their second-round matchup. Marchand has three goals, six assists and he's licked one opponent in seven games this postseason.
Apr 28 - 9:34 AM

Brad Marchand picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7.

Marchand was embarrassed in the second period, as he lost a one-on-one battle to Kasperi Kapanen that led to the Leafs forward scoring a shorthanded breakaway. The Bruins were down 4-3 heading into the third period, but they managed to score four unanswered goals to win. Marchand helped set up David Pastrnak's insurance marker (6-4) with less than nine minutes remaining in regulation. He then added an empty-netter in the final minute of play. Marchand finished the game with a plus-2 rating and four shots on goal in 18:36 of ice time. The 29-year-old accumulated three goals and nine points in seven games during the first round. The Bruins will now take on the Tampa Bay Lightning in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
