Boston Bruins

Brad Marchand scored an empty net goal late in the third period to help Boston seal a 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues in Game One of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Fantasy Impact: Marchand has produced six points in his last five games played this postseason. Even though he has been dealing with a minor hand injury this past week, he still has managed to find a way to have a positive impact on the Bruins stat sheet.

Fantasy Impact: Head coach Bruce Cassidy assured the media that Marchand is indeed alright and will not require any time off as Game One of the Stanley Cup Finals is approaching. The Bruins will need a key player like Marchand to win their second Cup in eight seasons.

Brad Marchand scored a goal and added two assists during Boston’s 4-3 win over Columbus on Saturday. Marchand now has four points in his past two games after failing to register a point in the three games prior to open the series.

Fantasy Impact: Boston’s top line of Marchand, David Pastrnak, and Patrice Bergeron has generated a ton of offense over the last two games, combining for 11 points. The trio is arguably the best line in hockey when they are on their game and will look to close out the series with another strong performance in Game 6 in Columbus on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Brad Marchand avoiding discipline spells relief for the Bruins. Marchand has 9 points, which leads all Bruins in the playoffs, although he is pointless in this series with a -2 plus minus rating, so there is no question the Bruins need him to play and play well to try to even this series up in game 4.

 

Brad Marchand was held scoreless for his fourth straight game on Tuesday during a 2-1 loss to Blue Jackets. He had three shots-on-goal for the contest. Marchand’s scoreless streak extends back to Game 7 against Toronto in the opening round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact: To make matters worse, Marchand may potentially face a suspension after he delivered a shot to the back of Columbus defenseman Scott Harrington’s head in the waning minutes of the game. The pugnacious forward is no stranger to controversy, so it is possible his suspension history will factor into the league’s decision here. Even if he evades suspension, the Bruins still need to get a lot more out of their leading scorer if they want a chance at evening the series.

Brad Marchand was quiet again on Thursday, posting his second consecutive scoreless outing during the Bruins overtime victory against Columbus. He was a minus-two with three shots-on-goal for the game.

Fantasy Impact: Marchand is too talented for this scoreless streak to go on much longer. Anticipate him breaking out of his mini-slump sooner than later. Luckily for Boston, the team escaped with an overtime victory with strong efforts from bottom-six forwards Charlie Coyle (two goals), Marcus Johansson (two assists), and Noel Acciari (one goal) to go along with another good outing from goalie Tuukka Rask (20 saves on 22 shots).

Brad Marchand fired five shots-on-goal but was unable to find the back of the net in Boston’s 5-1 Game 7 win versus Toronto.

Fantasy Impact: Despite a quiet night in the final game, Marchand produced four goals, five assists, and nine total points for the Bruins in the series, leading the team in each of those statistical categories. Fresh off his first career 100-point campaign in 2018-2019, Marchand is a no-brainer first-round fantasy selection next season.

Fantasy Impact: It's comforting to know he'll likely be ready for the season, since a healthy Marchand is a steady if unspectacular fantasy contributor. At 27, there is still room for Marchand to improve but I wouldn't move him up that far in your rankings. Draft him as your third winger (or second LW in positional specific leagues) and expect his normal level of production.
