Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand earned the NHL's First Star of the Week on Monday after dominating offensively in his team's three games from Oct. 21 through Oct. 27.
Marchand tallied eight points (three goals, five assists) in those three games, including a stellar 5-point performance Sunday night in a 7-4 win over the New York Rangers. The veteran left winger scored two goals and added three assists versus the Blueshirts to extend his point streak to 10 games.
One of his two goals will be featured on highlight reels all season:
