Brad Marchand already has a few nicknames floating out there -- he's a fan of Nose Face Killah himself -- but there might be another one added to the list: Frank the Tank.

In the craziness that was Tuesday night's shootout win for the Bruins that was complete with two Tyler Seguin scores thanks to some lunkhead throwing garbage on the ice during his first attempt, the ending was a bit lost.

The shootout needed a few extra rounds to be settled, setting the stage for Marchand to come in and score. He just charged right down the middle and managed to just squeeze the puck between Devils goalie Johan Hedberg's pads. It was the first time in his career Marchand scored in the shootout -- heck, his first attempt.

Normally things like that are pretty memorable for players -- they remember those sorts of moments.

Not Marchand. Don't bother asking him to describe it to you because he doesn't really remember what happened. From CSN New England:

"I just blacked out. I'm serious, I blacked out," said Marchand with a smirk on his face. "I don't know that happened. I just made a move and shot and looked back, and it was in."

There you have it, Marchand doing his best impression of Will Ferrell in Old School, turning genius in a brief moment of unconsciousness. Now let's just hope he doesn't decide to go streaking through the quad.
