Although Brad Marchand has stayed in the lineup, he isn't 100%. Marchand sustained an upper-body injury during Thursday's contest, but still ended up playing Saturday anyways. He registered an assist in 19:35 minutes of ice time and followed that up with another assist in Monday's game. That doesn't mean he made a quick recovery though. "There's no doubt that he's playing hurt," Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. Unfortunately Marchand won't get much of a rest because Boston is set to play on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.

After being held off the off the scoresheet in his previous two games, Kadri found the back of the net on a power-play goal thanks to assists from Nathan MacKinnon and Cale Makar. The goal stood as the game-winner as the Blackhawks couldn't find a way past Pavel Francouz. Kadri finished the game with seven shots on goal and a hit in 20:59 of ice time. The 31-year-old has 16 goals and 52 points in 37 games this season.
