The visitors were already 1-0 up after 20 minutes when the three men started their work. Marchand first took advantage of the power game to rock the ropes. The number 63 answered after 2 minutes and 42 seconds after his first success. He thus reprioritized two goals to his goal, as Dawson Mercer shook the Devils’ ropes, 28 seconds after Marchand’s first goal.
“We are constantly pushing ourselves to be better,” said Marchand, whose comments were echoed by the National League’s website after the game. Even tonight, when we had a good match, there are times when we blame ourselves for not being good enough in certain situations.”
Mercer was also a goal partner, Jesper Pratt, late in the second half. But the three Bruins players did not have their last word, as Bergeron once again gave priority to two goals at the start of the third half, while Jake Debrosk completed the score in an empty net. Bergeron also collected an assist in Marchand’s first game, while Pastrnak was a net-clash partner of two of his teammates.
“Obviously we have a lot of fun on the ice and our chemistry keeps going up, so we can easily guess what other people are going to do, but that doesn’t mean we’re always kind to each other.” Marchand added. I would love that we can hold ourselves accountable for performing at a high level and do that every night.”
“I have a lot of respect for the way they play,” said Devils manager Lindy Raff of the Bruins. These are the type of players you would like to have on your team. We know that to win you have to do your part to stop them.”
Defenseman Charlie McAvoy also featured three assists.
Goalkeeper Jeremy Swayman saved 27 balls to win.

The Penguins may have given the fans a slight panic when they activated the machine and Kasperi Cabanen and Ivan Rodriguez scored three quick goals in 4:08 in the second half of the third period.
However, Drake Paterson sealed the outcome of the encounter by counting in an empty net to complete his four-point evening.

Along with Riley, David Kampf, Ondrej Cassie, Michael Banting and John Tavares jogged the ropes for visitors.
For the Sabers, two goals within 59 seconds in the final third allowed a 4-4 draw. Skinner also scored another goal in the first half, and also collected an assist, on Taj Thompson’s goal.
