Marchand, Pavelski Star As Bruins, Stars Grab Victories

Jonathan Grant | January 13th, 2022

It was a quiet-ish night on Wednesday for the NHL, but three games still took place. And two of those games saw top stars make major impacts as they led their respective teams to the win. The Boston Bruins made it three in a row and seven out of their last ten by dominating the Montreal Canadiens 5-1 on home ice. A big part of that success has to go down to Brad Marchand, who scored a hat trick. He scored the game’s first two goals in a 15-second span in the first period and added his third in the second period.

Curtis Lazar scored twice and had an assist, too, while Patrice Bergeron recorded two assists. Marchand wasn’t the only one having a big night, though, as 37-year-old Joe Pavelski showed in leading his Dallas Stars past the Seattle Kraken 5-2. Pavelski didn’t quite rack up yet another hat trick like Marchand had managed, but was extremely influential in the outing, playing a hand in every goal in the win. He scored twice and assisted on all three of the other goals, giving him his first-ever five-point night in 13 NHL seasons. Roope Hintz had a goal and two assists as well in the romp as Dallas continues to fight in the middle of their division’s standings.
