Brad Marchand Hits A Personal Milestone In Win Over Islanders

Published January 3, 2018 at 2:47 PM

The Boston Bruins have been one of the best teams in the National Hockey League over the past few weeks.

The top line of Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak has been the driving force for their recent success. 

The top line produced two goals in Tuesday night's 5-1 beating of the New York Islanders as Bergeron scored his 12th of the season, the eventual game winner, and Marchand later nabbed his team-high 16th goal of the year.

Marchand had the primary assist on Bergeron's second period goal to hit another personal milestone. Bergeron's put back of a rebound off of Jaroslav Halak gave Marchand his 18th helper of the season and 200th of his NHL career.

Marchand is now the 43rd player in Bruins history to put up at least 200 assists.  He has a chance to move up quite a few spots on the list before the end of this season, including general manager Don Sweeney who had 210 career assists with the Bruins.

Zdeno Chara (305), David Krejci (379) and Bergeron (426) the only three active Bruins with more assists than Bergeron.  He has a very long way to go if he ever wants to catch Ray Bourque and his franchise leading 1111 career helpers.
