Brad Marchand was happy to get the monkey off his back as he chipped in his first goal since the game of the season against the Panthers.

Speaking of disasters, the Florida Panthers cleaned house after their 4-1 defeat at the hands of the Bruins. The Panthers sacked head coach Kevin Dineen, and assistant coaches Gord Murphy and Craig Ramsay.
