Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand played a big part in the team winning its first Stanley Cup in 39 years last season, tallying five goals and two assists in the Finals against the Canucks. And yet, somewhat curiously, he was nowhere to be found in the team’s commemorative DVD. Now we have the reason: he was intoxicated.

Three days after Boston closed out the series in June, the team was partying at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut. The following day players were scheduled to take part in interviews for the DVD. However, Marchand was excused from participating because he was still too drunk.

“(After the Cup, linemate Tyler Seguin) and I went on a bit of a tear, partying pretty much every night for a while,” the 23-year-old Marchand told Sports Illustrated this week. “I went home and kinda continued it. I thought (winning a championship) was something that might never happen, so I was trying to take it all in, enjoy it.”

You might remember the infamous bender the Bruins went on after claiming the Cup, which included a six-figure bar tab and photos of the team partying bouncing all over the Internet. So Marchand’s confession is the least bit surprising. But we still think an inebriated Marchand would have made for an amazing interview.
