Patrice Bergeron Needs Protection

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

Patrice Bergeron got roughed up again Wednesday night, and again the response from his Black-and-Gold peer group, the team he captains, was … OK, let me put this in the politically correct terms of NHL 2021 and call it, uh, not acceptable.

Now that we’ve dispensed with the soft-speak, let’s be blunt: It was an out-and-out disgrace.

Someone, anyone not named Bergeron, had to step up and give Vancouver defenseman Kyle Burroughs a smashmouth reminder that there’s still enough old-time Original Six hockey in the Bruins brand that no one messes with the team captain, especially one with Bergeron’s legacy of service and commitment, and especially a Bergeron already wearing a cumbersome face shield after having his nose rearranged by an even more egregious cheap shot the other night in Nashville.

But, nothing.

Nothing … for … Bergeron.

It has come to that. What in the name of John Wensink is going on around here?

Afternoon Line- Brad Marchand

"I have tried extremely hard over the last four years to get away from the reputation I've had. I think I've done an extremely good job at that. I know early on I crossed over the line a lot of times. It's unfortunate that continues to haunt me."

"I feel I've completely transformed myself from the player I was to a player that should be respected in this league for his abilities. I understand completely the history that I have. I just was hoping they would have seen past that. Obviously that wasn't the case."

-Brad Marchand iva Fluto Shinzawa tweets.

Video- Artemi Panarin Throws His Glove At Brad Marchand

from Daniel Rainbird of Sportsnet,

Brad Marchand is among the league's best at scoring goals and setting up teammates, but his ability to get under his opponent's skin is unmatched.

On Friday afternoon, he caught his latest victim: Artemi Panarin.

As the clock wound down on a 5-2 New York Rangers victory over the Boston Bruins, a Marchand-Panarin argument from their respective benches reached a tipping point when the Rangers star took his glove off, whipped it across the benches and nailed Marchand in the centre of his chest.

What could Marchand have said to push Panarin over the edge? If you're taking the Boston winger's word as gospel, Panarin might've taken issue with Marchand's decision to opt for something other than turkey on his Thanksgiving dinner plate.

"We were just asking each other how Thanksgiving dinner went and he didn’t like what I ate," said Marchand post-game, cheekily stoking the fire on the situation a day after the American holiday.

Tuukka Rask Willing To Take A Hometown Discount

via TSN,

Free agent goaltender Tuukka Rask is planning to return to the Boston Bruins this season once he recovers from off-season hip surgery.

Rask told WEEI 93.7 FM Boston on Wednesday that he is prepared to take a discount to return to the Bruins for a 15th season.

"I played with one team when I was in Finland (Ilves), I have been so lucky to be part of only one team in the NHL," Rask said. "For me, it's about that pride of playing for one team and one team only. I have no reason to chase the money anymore and go somewhere else. It's going to be one of those things where the Bruins are my home, Boston is my home. I've always wanted to play here, wanted to stay here. So, the money won't be an issue. We had a conversation with [Bruins general manager Don Sweeney] and I will be a cheap goalie for them."

The Bruins, who signed goaltender Linus Ullmark to a four-year, $20 million deal in free agency, have just over $1 million in cap space, per CapFriendly.

The 34-year-old added that he remains on schedule to return to game action in January after undergoing surgery in June.

"I'll be ready to go probably around Christmas time, January," Rask said. "So hopefully I can start skating here in a month and a half or so and then progress from there and be ready to go in January."
