Brad Marchand and his linemates Patrice Bergeron and Loui Erikssson were dominant against the Capitals in Friday night's exhibitio contest.
They were responsible for the Bruins' only goal in a 2-1 loss and generated 13 shot attempts, by far the most of any Boston forward line. Bruins' coach Claude Julien seems content to start the season with this unit intact. "You know, there’s still a lot of new players on our team, so there’s some chemistry that needs to be built there with different people, but that line there has been together at different times in the past, so it was good," said Julien. "They had some good chances, they made some good plays." Marchand will likely get a little more power-play ice time than he has in the past due to the trade of Milan Lucic. Look for him to improve his 2014-15 numbers. Oct 3 - 8:44 AM

Brad Marchand is looking to avoid the inconsistencies that plagued his game last season.

"You want to take the good thing and build on them and learn from the negatives," he said as he seeks more consistent efforts. "There were a couple of stretches that weren't great. If you look at those stretches, I wasn't taking the puck to the net as much as I should have been. I was kind of playing more on the perimeter. I think that's the biggest thing: To continue to drive to the net when I have the opportunity." He intends to be more mentally aware this season to correct himself if he goes off track. Marchand had 24 goals and 42 points, with 95 penalty minutes, in 77 games last season. He will be back with Patrice Bergeron in 2015-16 and he thinks David Pastrnak would be a great fit alongside them.

Brad Marchand is not concerned with his elbow being sore after offseason elbow surgery.

The feisty winger has been participating in captain’s practice over the past two weeks and is good to go for training camp. He had surgery to repair torn tendons in his right elbow during the offseason. "It’s been feeling a lot better than last year," said Marchand. "Sometimes it aches when I’ve been shooting a bit too much, but I think it’s normal with a surgery like that. It’ll probably take a little while before it’s 100 percent, but that’s normal. I’m definitely happy that I chose to do the surgery."

Brad Marchand had offseason surgery on his right elbow.

He had torn tendons that have now been repaired. Marchand spent six weeks in a cast and another three or four weeks in a splint and wasn't able to do any weight training over that stretch. Consequently, he's still working on getting his strength back, although he is optimistic about his ability to do so in time for the start of training camp. Obviously this isn't ideal, but he spent the entire 2014-15 campaign playing through this injury, so the fact that he is now in a position to go into the new season healthy is a big plus. He had 24 goals and 42 points in 77 contests in 2014-15.

Brad Marchand said he was shocked when he heard that the Boston Bruins traded both Milan Lucic and Dougie Hamilton.

"I think that day (Friday) was just a big shock with those guys leaving. I don’t know if guys were prepared for that to be happening," Marchand said. "There’s always speculation about guys getting traded, but there was obviously a lot more happening this year. You do get a little bit nervous, but I hope I’m here for a long time and if not, then it’s out of my hands. But it’s always a tough spot to be in when guys are getting traded and the team is changing around you and you’re losing friends and close teammates. It just means that new relationships have to be built and I think we’re all looking forward to that."

Brad Marchand underwent a minor surgical procedure after the season but will be healthy come training camp.

New Bruins' GM Don Sweeney would not reveal any details about the procedure but indicated it was not anything significant. Although inconsistent in 2014-15, Marchand did manage to score 24 goals, register 42 points and amass 95 penalty minutes in 77 games. That has value in most fantasy pools.

Forward Brad Marchand says his Boston teammates thought they were better than they were during the past regular season.

"Hockey's a humbling game for everyone and just when you think you're at the top, it'll knock you down and keep you grounded again," Marchand said. "I think that's what happened to this team. We might've thought we were better than we actually are and maybe [thought we were] a little too skilled and we didn't play to the system the right way, and ultimately that's what has allowed us to win the past." The Bruins did not make the playoffs this season. The lack of consistency cost the Bruins at both ends of the ice. Their offense ranked in the bottom third of the NHL most of the season and their leading scorer, Patrice Bergeron, had only 55 points.

Brad Marchand lit the lamp for the Bruins in their 3-2 shootout loss to the Lightning on Saturday night.

The pesky winger concludes the season with goals in back-to-back games and points in three of his last four games. In 77 games, he had 24 goals, 42 points and 95 penalty minutes. Loui Eriksson got the other goal. Expect some major changes to the Bruins this offseason.
Apr 11 - 10:54 PM

Brad Marchand recorded his 23rd goal of the season on Thursday.

He had gone 15 straight games without a goal going into the match and he had one assist in his previous seven outings. "It's obviously disappointing," Marchand said. "You want to help out on the scoresheet, especially the situation we're in right now. But the biggest thing is got to keep shooting the puck a little bit more and hopefully it'll find the net." Boston has one game left on the schedule and they need help to get into the playoffs.
Apr 10 - 8:32 AM

Brad Marchand opened the scoring Sunday against Detroit with a shorthanded marker.

He has 22 goals on the year now, including five in his past four games. Marchand has been hot of late with 11 points in his last 12 contests.
Mar 9 - 10:03 AM

Brad Marchand scored two goals in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over Philadelphia.

Things didn't look great for Boston near the end of the game, but Marchand forced overtime with his goal at the 19:45 mark of the third period. The 26-year-old also scored the game-winning goal in overtime to give the Bruins a big two points in the standings. Marchand now has 21 goals and 37 points in 59 games this season. It's the fourth time in his career that he hits the 20-goal mark. The Bruins now have a four point lead over the Florida Panthers for the final Wild Card spot in the East.
Mar 7 - 3:53 PM

Brad Marchand scored his 19th goal of the season and missed his shootout attempt Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to Calgary.

It was a pretty goal as Marchand was able to beat Karri Ramo to the post for the wrap-around goal, opening the scoring early on in the first period. Marchand would go on to add two more shots, two hits, and a block over his 18:27 of ice time. He ranks third on the team with 35 points.
Mar 5 - 11:16 PM

Brad Marchand scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over Arizona.

Marchand extended the Bruins' lead to 2-0 in the first period and he registered a primary assist on Patrice Bergeron's second period goal. The 26-year-old has 18 goals, 34 points and a plus-8 rating in 57 games this season. He is two goals away from hitting the 20-goal mark for the fourth time in his career.
Mar 1 - 9:50 AM

Brad Marchand scored a goal in Boston's 5-1 loss to St. Louis.

Blues' goaltender Jake Allen would surely like to have Marchand's goal back. The Bruins' forward took a wrist shot that bounced of Allen's glove and in to give Boston a 1-0 lead. Unfortunately for the Bruins, St. Louis scored five unanswered goals in the second and third period to propel them to a win. The Bruins are winless in their last six games (0-4-2) and they hold a slim one point lead over Florida for the final playoff spot in the Eastern conference.
Feb 20 - 10:47 PM

Brad Marchand scored a pretty shorthanded goal to put the Bruins up 1-0 early on in the first period, but Boston would fall to Calgary 4-3 in overtime on Monday night.

Patrice Bergeron started the play off by picking up an errand drop-pass by Calgary's TJ Brodie by center ice and raced in 2-on-1 with Brad Marchand, who finished off a nice pass by the assistant captain. The goal was Marchand's 16th of the season, giving him 29 points on the year with a pair coming down a man.
