Brad Marchand isn't sorry for partying. 

The Bruins winger, fresh off an ill-timed line change that shifted the balance of the Stanley Cup Final, was videotaped dancing shirtless with ski goggles on the stage of an undisclosed club early Saturday morning. 

Marchand confirmed his identity in a tweet Saturday afternoon, saying he’s “sorry for bringing it.”

While it is a little unusual to see a star athlete getting weird with goggles –– which takes getting weird to a whole different level –– in the immediate aftermath of a heart-crushing loss, there is absolutely nothing wrong with Marchand’s actions. He was seen crying on the bench in the final moments of Game 7 and said in the locker room it was the most painful loss of his career “by far.” Plus, he says he played through multiple injuries this postseason, including abdominal and groin issues and a sprained hand

You don’t play through that kind of pain if you’re apathetic about the result. Sometimes it’s best to dance your troubles away without your shirt in a noisy club.
