Brad Marchand is under siege for the crime of licking opponents on the ice. Columnists are ordering him to grow up and knock off the funny business. In response, Marchand has thrown some Twitter shade. The much-maligned Bruins forward, who posted 17 points in 12 playoff games, started his online...

Brad Marchand is rightfully vilified for his history of cheap shots. But he’s seemingly never received more blowback than this weekend, when he became Public Enemy No. 1 for licking opponents. That is ridiculous. On the scale of Marchand crimes against the game of hockey, sharing some saliva is way...

It's the end of an era loved by some, hated by many, and weird all around. Brad Marchand can't lick his opponents anymore, and this time the rumors are true. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told ESPN's Greg Wyshynski via email that league officials will be contacting the Bruins after Marchand...

The Lightning are not pleased with Brad Marchand. After licking Leo Komarov of Toronto in the first round of the playoffs, Marchand licked Ryan Callahan when the two were scuffling during Friday's Game 4 and Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper is not happy. "All I'm going to say is there is absolutely no...

Brad Marchand went where no agitator had gone before when he licked Leo Komarov in Game 1 of the Bruins’ Round 1 series with the Maple Leafs. When the initial shock wore off, people had legitimate questions. Would he get fined? Would this be Marchand’s Avery Rule? Did this set a league-wide...

Brad Marchand seems to have fully embraced his role as the NHL’s villain this season. The All-Star Game crowd booed him, so he blew kisses. The NHL announced him as Second Star for March, so he tweeted a kissy face Emoji in acknowledgement of all the chirps underneath the announcement. He actually...

Marcus Johansson, absent from close to 30 straight games due to a concussion suffered on an elbow from Brad Marchand back on Jan. 23, made his return to New Jersey practice on Monday. And with his return came some unfiltered thoughts on Marchand , the suspension, and how he hopes the league does...

Brad Marchand has already served his time for an egregious and unnecessary elbow to the head of Devils forward Marcus Johansson. The 29-year-old Marchand has found a way to thrive since the ban, too, with 12 goals and 30 points in 22 games since returning to the B’s lineup, and with talk of him...

If the Bruins were going to see their six-game winning streak come to an end, it probably made sense for Sunday’s matinee in Chicago to be the day it happened. Not only was this game their second in as many days (with travel) and with Anton Khudobin in net after a seven-goal outburst the day before...

The Bruins just completed a 6-0-0 homestand and they averaged five goals per game while doing it. They didn’t have Patrice Bergeron for any of those six games, they didn’t have Charlie McAvoy for the last four, and they didn’t have David Backes for the last two. Let’s take a moment to appreciate...
