Marchand scores 2 more to lead B's past Kings

Brad Marchand scored two goals to propel the Bruins to a 3-2 win over the Kings Monday afternoon at TD Garden.

Marchand, who had scored just five goals in the first 34 games of the season, picked up his 10th and 11th goals of a 15-game span and took over the team lead with 16 goals on the season.

The 25-year-old winger got the B’s on the board first with a shorthanded goal at 12:07 of the first period. He would later break a 2-2 tie in the third period by beating Jonathan Quick from the top of the left circle. Marchand was slow to get up after colliding with Jake Muzzin in the final minute of the game, but eventually skated off.

Following Marchand’s first goal, Torey Krug made it 2-0 thanks to a massive screen by Zdeno Chara on Quick with the Bruins on the power play. Chara, who had played the point on the other power play in recent games, provided enough of an obstacle on the play for Krug’s slap shot from the half wall to sail past Quick without the netminder having much of a look at it.

The B’s took the 2-0 lead into the second period, but the Kings came back to tie it with a second-period goal from Willie Mitchell and a third-period tally from Jeff Carter.

Chad Johnson earned his second win in the Bruins’ last three games. The B’s will have four days off before returning to action Saturday against the Flyers.

WHAT WENT RIGHT FOR THE BRUINS

- Marchand has been red-hot of late. He has 11 goals in the last 15 games and is currently on a four-game goal-scoring streak in which he’s picked up six goals. No. 63 has returned to being a scorer ever since his antics against the Canucks and his questionable hit on Calgary’s Sean Monahan last month.

- It was good to see Chara back in front of the net on the Bruins’ power play, and the B’s had Krug’s goal to show for it. With Dougie Hamilton out with a concussion, the Bruins had been playing Chara on the point on the second power-play unit, but because Milan Lucic was in the box for fighting Jordan Nolan on a power play late in the first period, the B’s played Chara up front. He provided the screen on Krug’s goal and was used in front again following a Robyn Regehr holding penalty.

- Krug now has 11 goals on the season, which puts him in a three-way tie with Erik Karlsson and Dustin Byfuglien for second among NHL defensemen. Shea Weber leads the way with 12.

WHAT WENT WRONG FOR THE BRUINS

- Quick doesn’t go 60 minutes without robbing a player or seven, and the B’s fell victim to the 2012 Conn Smythe winner in the second period when he stoned Reilly Smith in front off a pass from Patrice Bergeron and later robbed Chara in front with the Bruins on the power play.

- Matt Bartkowski has taken three penalties in the last two games, as an interference call late in the second period Monday followed a performance against the Blackhawks in which he took a pair of penalties.
