In an interview with Chris Ryan, Brad Marchand, a left winger for the Boston Bruins, discusses the team’s 4-2 victory over the Washington Capitals on Thursday night.
Brad talks about how he scored a short-handed goal—a slick toe-drag backhander during a penalty kill in the second period. He explains that executing a shot like that takes practice and adjusting to the higher speed in the NHL.
In the interview, Brad Marchand explains that this is a crucial time in the season. Marchand points out that as a team they all push each other to improve their skills. Also, he believes that the Bruins are peaking at the right time.
“It’s crunch time. We have to separate from the teams below us and build towards the playoffs.”
Brad Marchand continued his penalty kill dominance with a slick toe-drag before backhanding his 30th career shorthanded tally in the second.
