Welcome to the latest edition of the Brad Marchand Show, where the NHL's top instigator takes another dirty shot at an unsuspecting victim.

On Brandon Dubinsky's game-tying goal in Game 1, he and Riley Nash were able to get themselves to the front of the Bruins net easily.

"I'm not overly concerned about what's said in the media and what fans say, and stuff like that".

David Pastrnak, PatriceBergeron and Brad Marchand had combined for 260 points in the regular season, but had been neutralized by the Columbus Blue Jackets through the first three games of their Eastern Conference semifinal series. The Blue Jackets Have Won 13-of-15 Games Dating Back to March 24th.

For the second time in this series, the biggest news is one player that is not being talked about.

No doubt, the credit on Tuesday night goes to the Blue Jackets as much as blame goes on the Bruins. Sergei Bobrovsky has given up 14 goals on 222 shots faced.

"The secondary saves that he's making are very impressive, but he's going to crack at some point", Carlo said. We've had some great opportunities today throughout all three periods to put pucks behind him.

"I think that's the formula for us, get some traffic in there without bumping him", Said Cassidy.

Marchand appeared to punch Scott Harrington in the back of the head during Columbus' 2-1 win Tuesday.

Blue Jackets Injuries: Markus Nutivaara: day to day (upper body). From screens, to tips, to rebounds, the Bruins need DeBrusk to get to the net more often in order to get the power play going. Columbus has one more goal than Boston at seven and only four have come when playing 5-on-5 with the Bruins. Because of that, they were right to let the goal stand and not review it.

Boston does have some hope of reinforcements as they take on Columbus in a crucial game 4.

Boston had a power-play chance with just under nine minutes left in the game, but a Patrice Bergeron tripping call 17 seconds later negated the edge.

That forced him to step in front of reporters between games in this second-round series and face another round of loaded questions about his ability to straddle the line between agitator and aggravator. A frustrating paucity of goals, only two in the last five periods of regulation and two overtimes. By the time Chara got his stick down and in the way of Duchene's stick, the puck was already in the net.

"I don't feel I am in as much, you know, as many battles or anything like that this year".
