Brad Marchand misses 2 wide open nets

Want to stop Brad Marchand from scoring goals? Just take the goalie out of the net.

The Detroit Red Wings were doing everything they could to give Brad Marchand a goal on Thursday night. Other than playing with an empty net, there really wasn't much more they could do to set him up for a score.

Despite their best efforts, Marchand still could not find the back of the net.

After the Bruins battled back to tie the game at 2-2, Torey Krug set Marchand up with a beautiful pass that left Red Wings goalie Jonas Gustavsson completely out of position. Then this happened.

That's bad. But you know what makes it even worse? He did almost the exact same thing in the first period (via @MyRegularFace).

So close, yet so far.
