Brad Marchand’s dangles don’t always work perfectly, but when they do it’s a thing of beauty. David Pastrnak finished the job for him once again on Saturday, as another brilliant move by Marchand led to Pastrnak burying his 42nd goal of the season against the Red Wings.
Watch below as Marchand toe drags right around the Red Wings’ Andreas Athanasiou, then from the slot whips a perfect backhand feed to Pastrnak for the one-timer goal. The score put the Bruins up 4-1, and that would be the final score at TD Garden.
Nooooot much you can do about that.
The Bruins’ win pushed them to 36-11-12 on the season, maintaining their hold on the top spot in the whole National Hockey League. Bruce Cassidy won his 200th game as a head coach with the victory.
He can mainly thank some outstanding efforts by his top line for that. Including a shorthanded goal by Patrice Bergeron where he and Marchand absolutely embarrassed the Red Wings.
