Brad Marchand isn't one to hold anything back, which came up following Sunday's Game 6 win over Toronto when he ripped the TD Garden ice ahead of Tuesday's Game 7.

“[The Maple Leafs have] played really well in our building so far this series. The ice has been terrible there so, you know, might as well play with a tennis ball,” Marchand told reporters. “We’ll just skate around and see who bounces one in the net.”

Toronto won Game 1 and Game 5 at TD Garden, while the Bruins took Game 2.

Marchand wasn't the only Bruins player to comment on the ice, either.

"Sometimes the ice is good or bad, it's not like you can get an unfortunate bounce and they blow it dead and say it wasn't fair," Charlie McAvoy told reporters.

Game 7 is set for Tuesday night.
