The Bruins are back in action Wednesday night in Buffalo after taking a break for the Sochi Olympics.

While players like Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron, Loui Eriksson, David Krejci, and Tuukka Rask played in the games, the majority of the B's players didn't.

That includes Brad Marchand, who has had an up-and-down season for Boston. After his struggles during this season though, Marchand has turned things around and was playing some of the best hockey on the team prior to the break.

He doesn't think the stoppage in action will set his game back again.

"I don't think you can have two horrible stretches in the year, that doesn't seem fair," Marchand said. "I felt pretty good in practice, and felt pretty good before the break, so hopefully it will continue the same way."

So how did Marchand spend his time off? Under the sun, of course. He said he still caught "a little bit" of some Olympic action.

"I went somewhere warm and tropical," Marchand said. "But I tried to watch as much as I could and obviously I was rooting for my teammates and everything."
