With an assist on David Pastrnak’s goal in the Bruins’ 6-2 win at Columbus on Tuesday, Brad Marchand reached 100 points (36 goals, 64 assists) on the season for the first time in his NHL career.

It took him just 79 games.

He became the fifth player in the NHL this season to reach the century mark (Tampa Bay's, Nikita Kucherov, Edmonton’s Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, and Chicago’s Patrick Kane are the others) and the first Bruins player to do it since Joe Thornton (36 goals, 65 assists) in 2002-03.

Marchand also became the 13th play to record his first 100-point season in his 10th NHL season or later, and the ninth Bruins player to reach 100 points in the past 40 years.

Here’s a look back  at the top 6 plays of Marchand’s remarkable season:

6. The first one is the most recent one: his assist on Pastrnak’s goal in Columbus. It was a secondary assist and may have been the least flashy of all his apples this season, but the celebration where he declares his love for his teammates pretty much sums up who Marchand is on and off the ice.

5. Marchand took the tour of Toronto’s zone in November and then made this backhand feed across the slot to Pastrnak for a layup. I assure you it’s not as easy to do this as Marchand made it look.

4. Marchand has 15 career regular-season overtime goals, and in November he victimized the Dallas Stars and former teammate Anton Khudobin.

3. Patrice Bergeron did all the dirty work on this game-tying goal against Carolina, but it’s still a great finish by Marchand. And let’s face it, Marchand would want any list of his accomplishments to include at least one amazing play by his longtime linemate.

2. Connor McGregor dropped the ceremonial first puck on Irish Heritage Night at TD Garden on March 16. Then Marchand finished the game with an overtime goal and a “McGregor strut” showing his flair for the dramatic.

1. This was just another assist on another Pastrnak goal. It was just an October game against the lowly Ottawa Senators. But WOW! This is one that should never be forgotten, and you better believe Senators defenseman Dylan DeMelo is still having nightmares about it.
