Brad Marchand Won't Stop Licking His Opponents

In the middle of a Stanley Cup playoff game.

The series has gone back and forth, just like Friday's game, which saw the Lightning jump ahead 2-0, only to have Boston rally back for a 3-2 lead.

Brad Marchand is officially a serial licker and the National Hockey League seemingly has no clue what to do about it. Marchand once again made headlines for licking the opposing team, this time by violating Ryan Callahan on Friday. "So hopefully they can fix that". He really adds to our offensive side of things. Why aren't the officials giving Marchand a game misconduct (a punishment that can be handed out for spitting) or some sort of discipline under the unsportsmanlike conduct umbrella?

"You want the game to be officiated the right way: sometimes the calls won't go your way and sometimes they will, and we know that", said Donato. "And we're really focused to get that fourth one".

"NHL's (VP of Hockey Operations) Colin Campbell spoke with Boston's Brad Marchand and GM Don Sweeney today".

On Saturday, Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy announced that Krug did not make the trip to Tampa Bay with the team and that he will not be available for the game.

Marchand's curious tactic has set tongues wagging among the National Hockey League, with several players offering their take on how they might react if treated to a Marchand special. The League put the player on notice that his actions last night are unacceptable and similar behavior in the future will be dealt with by way of supplemental discipline.

"I do not get it, I do not perceive it". How would you believe if I walked over to you today and then gave you huge lick?

"All I'm going to say is there is absolutely no place in our game for that", Lightning Coach Jon Cooper said. Right from the chin all the way up. "There's no place from the game for it".

After Friday's sport, an additional time loss that put Boston down three video games to 1 within the sequence with Tampa Bay, Marchand mentioned Callahan punched him within the face 4 occasions.

"He only kept becoming close", Marchand explained.

Told that Callahan compared licking to spitting and said it should be penalized accordingly, Marchand said: "That's cute".

Nick Holden, acquired in a pre-deadline trade from the New York Rangers, will play in Krug's spot.
