You don't think of Brad Marchand as the kind of guy that's going to embarrass the opposing team with an unreal individual effort to score a dazzling goal, but that's exactly what happened on Monday night's Stanley Cup Finals Game 3 between his Boston Bruins and the Vancouver Canucks.
Marchand, plain and simple, made the entire Canucks defense look silly. And then he made arguably the best goaltender in the world look even sillier. The video:
Just... unreal. The chip to himself off the boards. The cut to the middle, avoiding a defenseman in the process. And then the coup de grace, the slight dangle that fooled Roberto Luongo and the final shot over the prone goaltender.
It's a thing of beauty. Watch it again. You have nothing to do today anyway.
