From Douglas Flynn of NESN, via Tweets:
—Marchand admitted he made golf swing gesture to Toronto bench I spotted as he jawed with Leafs toward the end of the second period.
—Marchand on the golf swing: “Yeah, that was a little immature of me. I shouldn’t have done that.”
—I wasn’t the only one to spot Marchand’s swing. He heard about it between periods. “I got a little bit of an earful. It won’t happen again.”
—By the way, I asked Marchand about his own golf game, and he said handicap was 6 or 7. I’m sure he’s hoping not to work on it for a while.
At The Bruins Blog:
Marchand said that Phil Kessel popped him in the mouth and there should’ve been a penalty. Instead there was a razzing from the bench and then the gesture.[...]
“He’s been a good player for us,” said Julien. “And again, his emotions can sometimes be a positive, and sometimes you don’t want to cross the line. You certainly don’t like that when it happens, so it’s just a learning process.”
