Bruins getting major output from Brad Marchand

There’s a lot going on right now with the Li’l Ball o’ Hate. His stick is hotter than his temper. Brad Marchand nailed in his 11th goal of the season Saturday afternoon, the game-winner in the Bruins’ 3-2 edging of the Lightning at the Garden, and if this were a standard 82-game season, the 24-year-old left winger would be on pace to score 50 goals.

Kind of mesmerizing, isn’t it? Brad Marchand, a 50-goal pace, a feat we haven’t seen around here since Cam Neely scored 50 in 1993-94. The Bruins have won a season-high six games in a row, and Marchand has potted four game-winners in that stretch.
