NHL: Brad Marchand scores to lift Bruins over Predators in overtime
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2014, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Boston • Brad Marchand tried to poke the puck through the defender's legs and then, to his surprise, found that he still had the puck.

The Bruins forward took a couple of more strides and wristed it into the net, giving the Bruins a 3-2 overtime victory over the Nashville Predators.

"He was shocked that it worked," Bruins coach Claude Julien said after Marchand's goal 54 seconds into overtime. "Give him credit for that and he was smart enough to throw it at the net. Maybe I was a little surprised, too."

Jarome Iginla and Johnny Boychuk also scored in regulation for Boston, and Marchand faked out Predators forward Mike Fisher at the point to score the game-winner. That gave goalie Niklas Svedberg a victory in his NHL debut.

"Fish knows better than that," Predators coach Barry Trotz said. "He can't play as light on guys one-on-one as that."
