Bruins forward Brad Marchand didn’t look too rusty at the start of the 2016 IIHF World Championship in Russia.
Playing for Canada, Marchand scored a shorthanded goal against the U.S. national team halfway through the 3rd period on Friday. The goal capped Canada’s 5-1 win in the teams’ opening game.
