The only difference between the two hits? Foligno skated away with a mere two minute clipping penalty, while Brad Marchand has been sidelined for the past five games, having to watch his team lose two of the first three games of a five game road trip. Here's video of Marchand's hit. In comparison, here's Foligno's. "It might be a little unfair if...

Bruins' Return to Full Strength, Ending of Wikipedia Blackout Positive Outcomes of Disappointing Road Trip

Thank goodness it's Thursday. Yes, it's a great day because Brad Marchand's suspension is over and Rich Peverley is back with the Bruins, but also -- more importantly, perhaps -- Wikipedia is working again.
