PLAYERS: Brad Marchand
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand threw a water bottle on the ice before the overtime faceoff during Monday night's Game 7 at the TD Garden against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Bruins coach Claude Julien didn't like the way his players were lined up for the faceoff, but couldn't get the attention of his players, so Marchand tossed the water bottle onto the ice to force the officials to blow the whistle and have his teammates reset. Marchand was not assessed with a delay of game penalty. Video via HockeyVideoHD. Visit us at and follow us on Twitter @HoldoutSports.
  • He threw the bottle to get the ref's attention because a fan had thrown a rally towel on the ice and the ref didn't see it. Leave it to the media to make something out of nothing! Had nothing to do with the formation on the ice. Why would you make that up?
  • Ok good for Marchand . i think he not 100% and doing what he can. Hes got at least a broken nose from mid season . He took a beating this season .

Bruins-Leafs: Tyler Seguin Taking Excessive Criticism As Marchand Gets Pass For Team’s Struggles

    First off, I am a Tyler Seguin supporter or a “Seguinista” since he was number two overall in the 2010 NHL draft.  With that being said, I am not going to tell you his performance in the playoffs this season has not been a disappointment. It has. He has relied on one offensive move and is not burying his chances. It is maddening. However, he is battling his ass off for...
