BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — It was a heck of a night for Bruins star Brad Marchand.
Marchand scored in last night's thumping of the Blue Jackets, but he assisted on David Pastrnak's goal for his 100th point of the year.
Feisty winger's the 10th player in B's history to achieve that feat, joining the likes of Johnny Bucyk, Phil Esposito, Rick Middleton, Bobby Orr and—most recently—Joe Thornton 16 years ago.
Marchand made sure to grab the puck from the net.
What is he gonna do with it?
"Gonna go to my dad, he's here," Marchand said. "He's here, going to my parents, trying to do something for them. Couldn't happen without them, so, I think they'll enjoy it."
What does it mean to Marchand to have a 100-point season?
"It's a pretty good feeling," he said. "I think it just shows how good of a team we have, the success that we've had as a group throughout the whole year. Guys are having good seasons. It's cool, it's a cool personal stat, but it all goes toward the same goal, which is getting to the playoffs."
Boston will start by hosting Toronto.
