from Sean Gordon of the Globe and Mail,
If most of the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens were saying nice, soothing things for the benefit of the cameras ahead of their meeting Tuesday night, rookie winger Brad Marchand dropped the political correctness like the Bruins shed their gloves in an 8-6 mauling of the Habs on Feb. 9.
No point in pretending, then, that these teams harbour anything but bile for one another.
“They like to get in and shoot their mouths of and then when you hit them they’ll dive down and fall easy,” Marchand said of the Canadiens, who lead the season series between the teams 3-1….
And if the Habs or their fans are upset about the treatment reserved for non-combatants Jaroslav Spacek and Tom Pyatt, who found themselves tangling with beefier Boston opponents in the final stages of that game.
“They stir the pot, and they got what they deserved . . . whatever anyone’s mad about, they can suck it up, it’s not our fault,” said Marchand, who also loosed a few verbal barbs at his old World Junior teammate P.K. Subban, saying “he just likes to take runs at guys” and if he has a chance to avenge a spectacular open-ice hit that Subban laid on him last December, he will.
