Bruins remain undefeated in Stanley Cup Final when Brad Marchand scores

Share

Brad Marchand scoring in the Stanley Cup Final is a very good omen for the Boston Bruins.

The Bruins beat the St. Louis Blues 5-1 in Game 6 of the Cup Final at Enterprise Center on Sunday night, forcing a Game 7 back in Boston on Wednesday night. Marchand got the B's on the board with a 5-on-3 power-play goal in the first period. It was his second goal of the series and first since Game 1.

The Bruins now are 6-0 in Cup Final games in which Marchand scores a goal. They are 2-0 against the Blues and went 4-0 versus the Vancouver Canucks in 2011. Marchand did not score against the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2013 Cup Final. 

Boston also improved to 25-1 all-time in the playoffs when Marchand scores a goal.

Marchand's line, which also consists of Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak, has scored only one 5-on-5 goal this series. Game 7 would be a perfect time for the "Perfection Line" to break out of its even-strength slump and deliver another championship for the Bruins.
