from Matt Kalman of The Bruins Blog, The Bruins were off from practice today, but the players participated in the team’s “Slice the Ice” charity event at the TD Garden. For the first time since he was ejected from the Bruins’ loss to Vancouver yesterday, Marchand addressed the media and spoke about the clip on Canucks defenseman Sami Salo that resulted in a game misconduct in the second period. “The puck was going around the boards and I went to pick it up and was kind of looking over my shoulder,” Marchand told the media in Boston. “I saw Salo coming in and I just kind of went down. “It was unfortunate he got injured. I did go under him, but I felt the base contact was at about his hip point and that’s usually a pretty legal hit from what I’ve seen in the past.” continued
