Brad Marchand makes Bruins history in Game 1 win

Put it in the record books!



As expected, the Boston Bruins took care of business against the visiting Florida Panthers in Game 1 of their opening round postseason series. Their 3-1 victory gave them the 1-0 series advantage, and they're now only 15 wins away from their first Stanley Cup since 2011. 

And it was the usual suspects coming through in the clutch for Boston, with David Pastrnak, Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk lighting the lamp; Linus Ullmark made 31 saves.

And Marchand's goal, which happened to be the 50th of his postseason career, also made Bruins history.

Per ESPN Stats and Info: 

“Brad Marchand has 50th career playoff goal, joining Cam Neely (55) as the only players to score at least 50 playoff goals with Bruins. Marchand’s streak of 6 straight home playoff games with a goal is the longest in Bruins’ franchise history.”

The Bruins and Panthers will get back at it tomorrow night from TD Garden.
