Marhand was quick, but he was still three seconds off the NHL record. Four players scored a goal at the :05 second mark to start an NHL game, with the last being Alexander Mogilny in 1989.

Watch: Brad Marchand Scores Fastest Goal to Open Game in Bruins History
Brad Marchand is a player on a mission these days, having notched 12 goals in his last 12 games for the Bruins. On Sunday he took his scorching-hot form to another level when he scored the fastest goal to open a game in Bruins history. It took just :08 for Marchand to rifle a wrister past Petr Mrazek, which eclipses the previous Boston record of nine seconds, which had stood since 1953.
