The top line of Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and Anders Bjork combined for four goals and 10 points in the contest. Marchand wasn't struggling offensively without Bergeron for the first five games of the year, but now that Boston's top center is back Marchand could explode offensively.

Brad Marchand was pretty outspoken about new face-off enforcement to be implimented this season.

Article 76.4 of the NHL rulebook states that during faceoffs, "the players taking part shall take their position so that they will stand squarely facing the opponent's end of the rink, and clear of the ice markings [where applicable]."The NHL is going to enforce this rule more stringently this season. Centers who violate the rule will be given a two-minute penalty. Marchand and many others are not happy with the NHL's new approach. "The game is something I love and this is completely taking away from it. It’s not just me. I’m the only one saying it. A lot of guys are opposed to it. I’m just saying something about it," said Marchand. If your league values penalty minutes, you may want to stock up on centers for the first few weeks of the season as the players get accustomed to the NHL's new enforcement protocols.

Brad Marchand doesn't seem too concerned about the heightened expectations thrust upon him after his superb 2016-17 campaign.

Marchand had 39 goals and 85 points in 80 contests last season, up from 61 points in his 2015-16 campaign. "I think [opposing defenses] should just be following Pasta and Bergy around, but it’s fine if they want to cover me. They can just do their thing," said Marchand. "When you’re fortunate to have a year like [last season] there are definitely higher expectations. But I’m not going to put that on myself. It’s more about being prepared for every game and following Bergeron around and let him hit me when I go backdoor. We’re all just going to work hard, and hope it just works well for everyone." Marchand also credited his career-highs on his additional power-play ice time, but that's not the full story as he also stepped up at even strength. Either way, it wouldn't be shocking to see him take a small step back, but still record 60-70 points.

Don't be surprised if Brad Marchand's penalty minute total continues to decrease.

As Marchand is now one of the NHL's elite scoring threats, the Bruins want Marchand to stay away from suspensions that cost him games. Marchand will certainly still get his share of minor penaltties and get in the odd skirmish, but his days of getting multiple misconducts may be over. That said, Marchand is still one of the most valuable fantasy players in the NHL and should rank very high on draft lists regardless of your hockey pool format.

Brad Marchand registered two assists in Boston's 3-2 overtime loss to Ottawa in Game 6 on Sunday.

That loss ended the Bruins' playoff run. Marchand had a goal and four points in the six-game series. This was a huge season for Marchand as he set new career-highs with 39 goals and 85 points in 80 regular season games. When he finished the 2015-16 campaign with 37 goals and 61 points there was some speculation that he might regress given how big of a jump it was, but this season really showed that he's made lasting progress offensively.

Brad Marchand had a game-high six shots on goal in Wednesday's 1-0 loss to Ottawa.

The Bruins now lead the best-of-seven series 1-0. Game 2 will be played in Ottawa on Saturday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. ET.

Brad Marchand will get back in the lineup on Wednesday, as Boston opens their first-round playoff series versus Ottawa.

He just finished serving a two-game suspension and knows that he has to behave himself with the postseason getting underway. "Yeah, it's tough. I've put myself in a bad position," Marchand said. "I'm under the microscope a little more, and I have to be a lot smarter than what I've been in the past. I definitely have to really dial it in, and I can't have any little mistakes. But again, that's the position I've put myself in and have to work my way out of." He led the Bruins with 39 goals and 85 points in 80 matches during the regular season.
