BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Brad Marchand scored twice and added an assist in the Bruins' 4-3 comeback win over the Coyotes last night at the Garden.

That's three straight wins to follow three consecutive losses for Boston, and Marchand's enjoying playing with David Krejci.

"He's such a good player, the way he sees the ice and the plays that he makes," Marchand said. "It's great to be able to connect on a few, and it's fun to win, so we're enjoying it right now."

Brad, you've been rolling lately. Three goals, five assists, and a plus-six rating your last three games. It'd taken you 14 games to total your previous eight points. What's changed lately?

"Especially early on, I think I was really focusing on pass first, the way that Bergie and Past were scoring, and trying to shoot a little bit more recently," he said. "You go through spurts every year where you score pretty frequently and other times when you don't, so you just gotta kinda roll with the bounces."

B's will visit the Penguins Friday.

And, good news, Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara have resumed skating on their own, so hopefully they'll return soon.
