Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand score on a penalty shot just 3:53 into tonight’s first period against the Florida Panthers at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.

// The penalty came from former Bruins right winger Rielly Smith as he hooked Marchand going in alone on Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo. The goal earned the feisty forward his 300th point in the NHL, all with the Bruins franchise.

// This season in nine games played, the Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada native has 4-7-11 number in the early campaign.
