Watch: What's wrong with Brad Marchand?

By ESPN.com staff




Barry Melrose looks at Brad Marchand's early-season struggles that has the forward on the third line for the Bruins. Through seven games played, Marchand has just one goal, one assist, and a plus/minus rating of -1.

"This guy has to play on an edge," says Melrose. "He has to be just a little ball of hate, he has to make people mad to play against him, he's got to be yapping, he's got to be chirping, he's got to be slashing... that's not the case right now."
