One of the obvious narratives that continues to develop in this Boston Bruins season is the goal-scoring touch that Brad Marchand continues to display.
You know that it won't last forever, but then again, the B's forward continues to pot big goals. He did that once again Saturday afternoon at TD Garden when he scored with just 2:16 to play in the third period, giving the Bruins the go-ahead goal in an eventual 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The goal, Marchand's 11th of the season, was also his fourth game-winning tally so far. It seems like it's been more, really. The pesky forward, who has the reputation as a player who likes to get under the skin of the opposition, is starting to develop the reputation as one of Boston's most important goal scorers.
"When we need a big goal, he seems to be able to find it," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "He's a clutch player, and he's the kind of player you want to have on your team."
