Brad Marchand LW BOS 3 weeks ago

Bruins GM Don Sweeney confirmed over the weekend that Marchand underwent a "small procedure" after the season ended, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports.

Sweeney would not provide any specifics regarding Marchand's procedure, but the minor nature of the operation suggests that he'll be ready to go for the start of training camp. Marchand saw his numbers tail off fairly steadily last season, with his points dropping from 53 to 42 and his plus/minus falling from plus-36 to plus-5.

Marchand notched his 23rd goal of the season in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers.

Marchand's goal -- which ended his 15-game goal-less drought -- pulled Boston to within one goal with 6:45 left to go in the contest, but Jimmy Hayes tallied Florida's final goal of the night just 1:59 later, sending the Bruins to the brink of playoff elimination. With one game left on the team's regular season slate, the feisty Marchand has notched 41 points and 95 PIM in 76 games.

Marchand notched an assist in 18:30 worth of ice time in Saturday's 2-1 shootout win over the Leafs.

Marchand, who has not scored a goal in 14 games, had also gone five contests without a point prior to Saturday's assist. Through it all, he remains tied for the team lead in goals (22) with Patrice Bergeron, to go along with 18 assists and 95 PIM in 74 games. Though Marchand's production of late has been spotty, while currently working on a line with Bergeron and David Krejci (for the time being), the feisty winger should have his share or scoring opportunities down the stretch.

Marchand notched an assist in 14:04 worth of ice time in Sunday's loss to the Lighting.

Marchand also recorded seven PIM in the game, thanks to a two-minute roughing minor in the first period that was followed by a five-minute major for his scrap with Steven Stamkos. Prior to Sunday's helper, Marchand had gone seven games without a point and the Bruins obviously need more production from the feisty winger down the stretch, with the team's playoff fate hanging in the balance. Overall, Marchand has recorded 22 goals and 39 points to go along with 91 PIM in 68 games to date.

Marchand potted the tying goal with 15 seconds remaining in regulation and then scored the game-winner in overtime to give the Bruins a crucial victory over the Flyers on Saturday.

Marchand has been on a goal-scoring binge of late, finding the net four times in three games to give him a team-leading 21 markers on the season. The winger will never be mistaken for a top-flight sniper on the level of Alex Ovechkin, but he's an important cog on a Bruins squad that relies on a number of players to shoulder the scoring burden.

Marchand scored a goal and added an assist in a 5-1 win over Arizona on Saturday night. The goal stood as the game winner.

It was his first multi-point effort since Jan. 31, but he does have six points, including three goals, in his last seven outings. Hopefully this is a foreshadowing of an improvement over the season's last 20 games. Make sure he's in your lineup, just in case.
