The Bruins penalty killing unit has improved significantly over the last few games.
The Bruins still rank 28th in that category, but they've been able to kill off 23 of their last 27 power plays. "We were losing games because of the penalty kill, and now we have a lot more confidence. I think we’re more in sync out there. We have a better understanding of what we’re all doing and we’re not overly concerned about what the other team’s doing," said Marchand. "[It’s about] more how we’re going to kill it. I think we’ve really improved in that area, and it’s helping us win games." Nov 29 - 10:12 AM

Forward Brad Marchand scored two goals in the Boston Bruins' 4-3 shootout victory over the Maple Leafs in Toronto Monday night.

Marchand's goals were his ninth and 10th of the season. The Bruins squandered a 2-0 lead after the first period before the Leafs came back in the second to tie the game at 2-2. The teams were tied 3-3 after the second and could not score goals in the third period or in overtime, setting up the shootout dramatics. Boston's other goal scorer Monday was Zac Rinaldo, his first of the season. Rinaldo also recorded a team-high four hits in the game.

The Boston Bruins don't seem too worried about the amount of penalties Brad Marchand has taken this season.

Marchand leads the team with 33 penalty minutes in 16 games. "There are some penalties there…that late one against [San Jose] was probably an ill-advised decision on his part. But at the same time I think he’s cleaned up a lot of areas of his game whether it’s turnovers, or holding onto the puck too long," said Bruins coach Claude Julien of Marchand. "He did it again one time [against Minnesota], and then he came back to the bench really mad at himself. So he recognizes those kinds of things, but at the same time he’s skating well, he’s taking pucks to the net and he’s skating towards the net. There are a lot of things he’s doing well." This is looking like it could be a career season for Marchand as he also has seven goals and 13 points.

Brad Marchand took a blindside hit to the head from Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog on Thursday night.

Marchand was not hurt on the play, though. "Any time you get hit in the head, you're a little concerned — especially (since) I got a concussion a couple of weeks back," he said. "So I was definitely nervous; I'm happy I'm OK." Marchand delivered a gloved punch to Landeskog's head after he got up from the hit.

Brad Marchand practiced Tuesday with Ryan Spooner and Jimmy Hayes.

He joined the third line during Boston's road trip, but he still saw some action alongside Patrice Bergeron as well. Marchand doesn't see it as a demotion. "I think you want to play the right way and kind of lead by example in that kind of way," he said. "I've got to make sure that I play within the system and get Spoons and Hayser to kind of do the same thing."

Brad Marchand was benched during the second period after he was given a roughing penalty.

He still ended up with 17:19 of playing time in Boston's 4-1 loss. Marchand is tied for 10th in the league with 25 penalty minutes and he has nine points in 10 games.

Brad Marchand will not face NHL discipline for his hit on the Panthers' Dmitry Kulikov.

Marchand boarded the Florida defenseman Friday night resulting in Kulikov sustaining a broken nose and Marchand being assessed 15 minutes in penalties. However, the NHL sheriffs must have concluded that part of the reason Kulikov crashed into the boards was that he was off balance. If you own Marchand in your fantasy pools this is good news as the pesky winger has been hot as of late.
