The Boston Bruins are poised for a deep playoff run thanks in large part to Brad Marchand and his historic season.
Last night in Boston’s 7-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets, Marchand recorded his 100th point of the season. It’s been a long time since someone in a Bruins sweater has accomplished that feat. All the way back in 2003 when Joe Thornton was able to get up to 101 points. Marchand recorded a goal and an assist in last night’s victory and celebrated accordingly with his teammates after a helper on Pastrnak’s third period goal propelled Marchy to 100.

Marchand was just named the NHL’s Third Star of the month after recording 9 goals and 14 assists in 15 games. Marchand has been on a torrid pace over the last couple months and on the year sits with 36 goals and 64 assists. Marchand is one of five players to reach the 100 point mark this season. Marchand has really become a force in recent years for the Bruins and if he can continue racking up points this way he’ll be more than worth that deal he signed two years ago.
The Bruins still have a couple games remaining in the season but with their win last night and Toronto’s loss they’ve locked up home ice advantage in round one.
