BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Game 4 between the Bruins and Blue Jackets is tonight in Columbus.
Boston's down 2-1 in the series, and almost lost leading scorer Brad Marchand because the feisty winger didn't make the best decision late in Tuesday's Game 3 loss.
No, he didn't lick him, but Marchand punched a kneeling Scott Harrington after a whistle. Somewhat surprisingly, no punishment's expected.
"Probably not something I'd go back and do again, but stuff like this happens in hockey," Marchand said. "Jake took about six punches there from two guys, so it is what it is."
You okay, Scott?
"It's fine, that's what the helmet's for, so it's good," Harrington said.
TMZ caught up with "The Great One," Wayne Gretzky.
"Well, we've all been punched," Gretzky said.
Speak for yourself, Wayne.
Marchand's been frustrated. He's scoreless in the series.
