Before Game 2 between the Boston Bruins and Ottawa Senators, Brad Marchand took a selfie with a very lucky fan.
Hockey players tend to take their pregame routine seriously. Most like to focus and get ready for the game, especially in the postseason. However, some players prefer to stay loose and interact with the fans a little bit.
Boston Bruins star forward Brad Marchand is one of those guys. Before Game 2 against the Ottawa Senators, he took a few seconds to allow a lucky Bruins fan to get a selfie with him.
Marchand is coming off an impressive Game 1 performance. His game-winning goal gave the Bruins a 2-1 win over the Senators. After not putting up a shot in the entire second period, Boston got two third period goals to surprise Ottawa.
Marchand has emerged as one of the top forwards in the NHL. During the regular season, he finished tied for fourth in goals with 39 and tied for fifth in points with 85. He led the Bruins in both categories. Had it not been for a late two-game suspension, he would have played in all 82 games.
The Bruins are looking to pull off the slight upset as the third seed in the Atlantic Division over the second-seeded Senators. However, Boston never beat Ottawa during the 2016-17 regular season. But you have to throw out all of those regular season numbers once the Stanley Cup Playoffs start.
Marchand is looking to add another Stanley Cup to his resume. He played a huge role in the Bruins’ 2010-11 Stanley Cup run and has a World Cup gold medal as well. Not only that, Marchand has a World Championship gold medal too. While he doesn’t have an Olympic gold medal, surely another Stanley Cup would be good enough.
