BOSTON (AP) Brad Marchand has become Mr. Overtime for the
Bruins.Not just this season Authentic
Dougie Hamilton Jersey
, but in franchise history.The pesky forward
completed his hat trick 34 seconds into overtime on Tuesday night to help
Boston, which twice squandered a two-goal lead in regulation, escape with a 6-5
victory over the Detroit Red Wings.”He’s been a big-time player for our team for
a long time now,” said defenseman Torey Krug, who had two goals and two assists.
”And he obviously enjoys being that guy.”It was his fourth game-winner in five
Bruins overtime wins this season. And it gave Marchand 11 overtime goals – a
franchise record, though the NHL didn’t start playing regular-season overtimes
until 1983.”Played with great players,” said Marchand, who also had two assists
to help Boston win its fourth straight. ”It makes it a lot easier.”David
Pastrnak had three assists for the Bruins, who led 2-0 after 52 seconds and
never trailed but needed overtime after Martin Frk made it 5-5 midway through
the third period. Anton Khudobin made 30 saves for Boston.Anthony Mantha had two
goals and two assists for Detroit, which has lost four straight, seven of nine
and 17 of 26 since it last topped .500 on Jan. 5.Jared Coreau was beaten by the
first two shots he faced and stopped just 12 of 16 shots before he was replaced
3:27 into the second period. Jimmy Howard faced 19 shots and saved 17 of
them.The Bruins led 2-0, 4-2 and 5-3 before Mantha scored his second goal in a
four-minute span to make it a one-goal game with a little more than four minutes
left in the second. It stayed that way until Frk was left alone in the
slot ,
falling to his knees as he swatted the pass from Tyler Bertuzzi into the net
with 10:14 remaining in regulation.The Red Wings attacked first in the overtime
but got a bad bounce off an official near the blue line to send the Bruins off
on a rush. Marchand picked up a rebound off Krug’s shot, moved it to his
backhand and scored the winner, triggering an avalanche of the free green hats
given out in honor of Irish Heritage Night.”Most nights it’s not going to be
6-5,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. ”But when it is, the guys have got to
know they’ve got a chance to get it done. That is a good quality to have in your
group. You don’t want to use it every night.”Krug and Jake DeBrusk scored 15
seconds apart in the opening minute of the game. But the Red Wings tied it,
getting a power play goal from Frans Nielsen 84 seconds later and a goal from
Mike Green about five minutes after that.Krug made it 3-2 on a power play with
about six minutes left in the first, and Marchand gave the Bruins a 4-2 lead
with six to play in the second.NOTES: Nielsen left the game after taking a hit
to the head from David Backes in the first period. He received medical attention
on the ice but skated off on his own. … Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy is out
for at least a month with a sprained left MCL. General manager Don Sweeney said
earlier Tuesday that McAvoy will be evaluated in four weeks. He was injured
Saturday in the opening shift of Boston’s 2-1 overtime win over Montreal. … It
was the 600th meeting between the two Original Six teams. Detroit holds a
251-250-95-4 edge, but Boston has gone 14-1-1 in the last 16 games. … It was
Irish Heritage Night, and the Bruins practice jerseys were green with plaid
trim. Irish step dancers and musicians were featured in the concourse and
vomitoria. … Coreau made his first NHL appearance of the season after being
named the AHL goaltender of the month in February.UP NEXTRed Wings: Host the

DENVER (AP) It seems nothing can stop Nathan MacKinnon during what’s been a
career year. Not a shoulder injury that cost him eight games, and certainly not
the Minnesota Wild.MacKinnon had two goals and three assists, Mikko Rantanen had
a goal and three assists and the Avalanche beat Minnesota 7-1 on Friday
night.The five points tied a career high for MacKinnon, who also set personal
bests in goals (31) and assists (45) for the season. He reached the 30-goal mark
for the first time in his five-year career.MacKinnon has seven goals and eight
assists in seven games since returning from a shoulder injury Feb. 18. He was
second in the NHL in scoring when he went down Jan. 30 Johnny

fourth overall.”I don’t know what he did when he was gone but he clearly was
doing something right because he’s come back in real good shape and he picked up
where he left off,” linemate Gabriel Landeskog said.MacKinnon’s other five-point
game was Nov. 16 against Washington.”I wish I didn’t miss those eight games, but
I definitely do feel good,” MacKinnon said. ”Hopefully if we can make the
playoffs, it’ll be a blessing. If we don’t, it won’t be. If we squeak in, I’ll
be a little fresher than some of the other guys.”Tyson Barrie had a goal and an
assist, and Landeskog, Carl Soderberg and Matt Nieto also scored to help
Colorado gain ground in the Western Conference playoff race with its 13th win in
14 home games.The Avalanche jumped over idle St. Louis and stayed a point behind
Anaheim for the second wild card with 75 points. The Ducks beat Columbus 4-2 on
Friday.”We’re not just trying to chase the last wild card, we’re trying to be a
team in the division and solidify a guaranteed spot – in the top three,”
MacKinnon said.MacKinnon is trying to lead his team to the playoffs for the
first time since 2014, when the Wild upset the No. 2-seeded Avalanche in seven
games. He is giving the Wild some payback with eight points in the last two
games.Colorado has scored seven goals in both home games against Minnesota.Mikko
Koivu scored for the Wild Kris

, who have lost two straight after winning five in
a row to move into third in the Central Division. Minnesota has a four-point
lead on Colorado and has played one more game than the Avalanche.”Now when you
lose one or two in a row teams are gaining on you all over the place,” Minnesota
coach Bruce Boudreau said.Devan Dubnyk allowed five goals on 17 shots before
being replaced by Alex Stalock after Soderberg’s goal. Stalock had seven saves
for the Wild, who have allowed seven goals in both games in Colorado this
season.Landeskog and MacKinnon scored 2:26 apart midway through the first period
to give Colorado a 2-0 lead, and then the Avalanche put it away in the
second.After Barrie made it 3-0, MacKinnon, Soderberg and Rantanen each scored
in a span of 4:32 to make it 6-0. Soderberg’s tally, which went off Eric Staal’s
skate, chased Dubnyk.”I’d like to get the fourth one,” Dubnyk said. ”I don’t
know what happened on the fifth one.”Koivu spoiled Semyon Varlamov’s shutout bid
with his 12th goal at 17:07 of the second period. Varlamov finished with 31
saves.NOTES: Colorado C Colin Wilson suffered an upper-body injury in the second
period and did not return. … Avalanche D Anton Lindholm returned after missing
five games with an elbow injury. … Minnesota is 4-6-1 in the second night of
back-to-back games. … Colorado announced it had signed D Connor Timmins to an
entry-level contract that begins next season. Timmins was the Avalanche’s
second-round draft pick last June. … Wild C Charlie Coyle turned 26 on Friday.UP
