BOSTON BRUINS FORWARD BRAD MARCHAND

On his reaction to being selected for the All-Star Game…
Initially, I was a little shocked. We have some great teammates that deserve to be there, and I expected them to be there. Very, very honored, very excited to be given the opportunity, and very proud to be part of this game again.

On having another All-Star caliber season…
I am very happy, very proud again. I think it speaks volumes to how well our team is playing and coming together. I think we all benefit from that, so it is great to see how successfully as a team we are all coming together.

On his linemates Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak…
They’re huge. I know I wouldn’t have the year that I’m having without them. I owe a lot of it to them. I am very fortunate to have them as linemates – both phenomenal players, both deserved to be here, as well. It is an honor to come to the rink every day and be on their line and have the chemistry we do. We have a lot of fun together.

On the team’s first half of the season…
I think we have had a pretty decent first half. There are still areas that we can improve on and continue to build. I think with where we were at the start of the year to this point today, we made some good progress. We’re not where we want to be yet, and we’re not going to be satisfied until we get there.

On what he’s looking forward to at All-Star weekend…
To be honest, I am still nervous about going. Just excited for the whole thing. A big thing last year that I really enjoyed was seeing the All Stars and players of the past that were around, favorite players that I watched growing up and getting to meet them, getting to meet the legends of the game and being around them. Being a part of the whole atmosphere is a lot of fun, so I’m looking forward to being part of that again.
