    Close Call for Marchand

    Getting one in the sack is never fun, but man, he's lucky he didn't connect here.

    Lucky for Marchand or lucky for JVR? I'd say both.

    Lucky for both. JVR was good last night going to the net but Marchand was on it, I felt he was one of the best Bruins last night.

    It was an intentional miss.  I think Marchand could have hit him if he really wanted.

    Yup, more sending a message than anything else.

    Poke in the nuts, slash/chop on the hand. I would say that's pretty even.

    It's not like he went for his head.

    I dunno, looks pretty close to me. It's an agry reaction, I dont think he missed on purpose. He just turned around and swung his stick.

    I like Marchand getting in people's faces but there's no room for this kind of garbage in the game.

    He doesn't short arm it or lean back.

    If he had really wanted to inflict damage he could have stepped forward or leaned in.

    Oh, he could have done a lot of things.  He could have chased him down McSorley-style and chopped him in the head.

    It was a reactionary play.  I'm sure death wasn't on Marchand's list, but I doubt he intentionally missed as well.  That's why I say he got lucky.

    It's a good thing Phaneuf didn't come to the rescue.  He may have dented the Garden ice!

    hahaha....would have been even funnier if he seperated his shoulder when he hit the ice!

    I look forward to him playing "tough guy" against Krecji and Seguin while running away from contact with FATS...

    That second .gif shows just what a slimeball Ruutu is.  Well timed hook behind the knee.  It's funny to see Phaneuf go azz over teakettle, but it wasn't like he fell on his own.

    Good thing Marchand missed, I'm guessing that even with the slightest brush of the stick, JVR would have gone down like a bad card table.

    I think the Leafs are going to go down like a card table.

    There's ABSOLUTELY WITHOUT A DOUBT any intent there......off missing! He swung that stick to connect & anyone who try's to defend this has rose colored glasses on! Comon, show some objectiveness here! What JVR did is garbage too, but to try & say that that "if he wanted to hit him he would've." ? very ridiculous comment. I've swung my stick like this before & never had the intent of missing to give a warning shot!

    Re: Close Call for Marchand

    The objectivity is that Marchand was retalliating because VanR tried to butt end him in his "privates". Does that tidbit change these negatives about Marchand ? Phaneuf did it to Seguin, which should have been 5 for intent to injure, now VanR does a sneaky move as Marchand was skating by. These are really dirty moves by the leafs, and will not be tolerated as this series proceeds. Also, it was a clear elbow by Ference on Grabofski, so the cheap shots could escalate.
