Video: Marchand takes pair of penalties getting into Price’s kitchen

May 14, 2014, 9:09 PM EDT

Has Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand been unlucky or undisciplined tonight? He took two penalties in the first 40 minutes of Game 7 against the Montreal Canadiens for incidents involving Canadiens goaltender Carey Price.

The first time he crashed into Price from behind, but it looks like he got tangled up with (and possibly knocked down by) Montreal’s Andrei Markov. The second call was for unsportsmanlike conduct after he snowed the Canadiens netminder.

You can see both incidents below:

Montreal didn’t capitalize on either opportunity, but it was time that the Bruins were forced to shift their focus away from overcoming their deficit. Montreal’s Dale Weise scored just 2:18 minutes into the game and they’ve maintained the lead going into the third period.

Whether or not you want to blame Marchand for those penalties, he still hasn’t been helpful to his team tonight or in the playoffs overall. He’s typically a great secondary scorer for the Bruins, but the 26-year-old forward has no goals and five assists in 11 and two-thirds postseason contests.

      Well i guess they almost suck as much as the Pens. Though the Pens do have the “best” player in the league, or so I’ve read.

    And by the way Boston. Wooo

    From a lot of flyers fans….. Montreal and Danny B go get it congrats

    • mangoman1966 - May 14, 2014 at 10:00 PM

      Hell yeah. Go canadiens. Great coaching Mike therion who got shafted by the pens

    He might’ve gotten tangled up with Markov? What video are you watching? Markov drilled him in the side of the head/neck with his stick, couldn’t possibly have had anything to do with it, right?

    That aside, B’s came out slow, and just couldn’t catch a break, 13+ posts this series ain’t gonna cut it against Montreal’s defense. Yes, there were some odd officiating decisions tonight, but the Bruins didn’t help themselves any, either.

    G’luck to the rest of the folks in the playoffs, see ya next season!

    That’s what you get, Boston, for being Sean Avery-Wannabe ball-spearing, water bottle spraying, jerkheads in these playoffs. Maybe you should have spent more time actually playing and less time trying to figure out new ways to be clowns on the ice.

    And that is why the girl on the treadmill commercial fell down before the Flyers girl. Bruins are awful

  8. longcutskolvikes - May 14, 2014 at 10:00 PM

    It was a great series. It’s always nice to see the players show each other respect in the handshake line. The Bruins had an excellent season. Go Habs go!!!

    Marchand 20 games in a row in playoffs no goals.. Big time player there. Lucic stinks . Drew is a little upset . Awwwww

    • drewzducks - May 14, 2014 at 10:54 PM

      Not upset ‘bro. All these championship parades in Boston were starting to get a bit tiresome anyway.

    One of the worst officiated Game 7’s in history. An embarrassment for the league really. But that’s not why Boston lost. They lost because they hit 13posts and missed 7 point blank open nets. They should have won easily in 5 games and been on, but they didn’t. that’s why you play the game because luck and flukes happen in sports and can take an inferior team further. In this case, it happened.

    • 2qswing - May 15, 2014 at 8:54 AM

      Classic B’s fan. absolutely no credit to the other team. now let me educate you on why you lost.
      Was Tuuka’s whiff on the second goal last night the refs fault? Mont D totally shut down the Lucic line and generally limited shots outside the dots the whole series. Hitting a lot of posts is the product of some luck, not getting a lot of clean looks and shooters just missing.
      Carey Price played out of his mind. not fluke, not luck from an inferior team..just great play by a goaltender and a D group. The smaller Montreal forwards and D won the majority of board battles, supposedly the Boston strength. Stupid neutral zone and offensive zone penalties by the Bruins. Chara looked slow and vulnerable.
      I could care less about the Montreal Canadiens. But your team got out played in goal, on D and up front.

        You’re clueless and don’t have a clue about hockey. 13 posts. Montreal got extremely lucky and their luck was timely. That isn’t taking anything away from them,they capitalized on their chances and as I said, flukes happen in sports. This idea that Carey Price “played out of his mine” is the biggest myth of all. If any of the 5 posts and 3 open net chances in Game 1 were hit, we are talking about a B’s in 5 and no “Carey price invented goal tending”. But that’s the game. That’s what is called good fortune, and it is needed to win a cup. The Bruins certainly got their share of good luck in 2011. Goal tending is NOT what won and lost this series, and only a completely unintelligent, intellectually lazy fool would point to Goal tending.

    OK OK you convinced me. Price was lucky, refs were horrible, Montreal got extremely lucky in all four games they won, lets see am I missing anything. Oh, the posts that Montreal hit don’t matter.

    You are a stereotype of the typical Boston hack who thinks the only reason any of their teams ever lose is officiating and luck. The vast majority of the Philly, Ranger, or any other fans who post here are at least capable of critical thought when talking about their home team. Not you.
    Your team was out played in net, on the boards, in front, AND got scored on in the first 4 minutes or so of the last two games. Call all the names you want. I’m almost 60 and I’ll take my 35 years in the game over your Tuesday men’s league.
    Oh and if Scott Norwood had made the field goal, Buffalo would have won the Super Bowl. But he didn’t and they didn’t. I will assume that comparison is not above you.
