6 Reasons Brad Marchand Will Continue His Goal-Scoring Hot Streak

Quick—name the Boston Bruin who's leading all NHL players with 10 shots or more in shooting percentage.

No, it's not David Krejci, even though the Czech forward leads the team in scoring. It's definitely not the frustrated Tyler Seguin, whose first goal of the season was an empty-netter. In fact, it's Brad Marchand, whose 8-of-18 release is good for a whopping 44.4 shooting percentage. 

You might expect that number out of Seguin or Krejci, but to see Marchand's output at that level is a bit of a shock. It puts a player who scored 28 goals in 76 games last season on pace for over 30 goals in a maximum of 47 games this year. That's an incredible jump.
