Videos- What You May Have Missed From Last Night

Brad Marchand being Brad Marchand.



from Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post on a Dustin Byfuglien slash...

Late in Tuesday’s game at Bell MTS Place, Capitals center Jay Beagle was carrying the puck up the ice when Winnipeg Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien took two whacks at him, catching him on the ribs with the second slash.

Byfuglien was called for slashing and sent to the box for two minutes. Beagle had to be helped to the bench, where he was still in obvious distress. He didn’t play for the rest of the game, though there wasn’t much time left in the 4-3 overtime loss. After the game, Coach Barry Trotz took issue with how Byfuglien’s slash was penalized, and he also didn’t have an update on Beagle’s health.

I watched that Marchand hit on Frolik probably 5 times, frame by frame.  It’s tough to see what he did but it looks like he took his elbow and gave him a nice little jab to the jaw or something.  Hard to tell exactly though. 

Regardless, that’s not the part that bothers me.  What bothers me is how he grabbed Frolik’s jaw-guard (or whatever) and tugs it around.  You could seriously hurt a guy’s neck doing that.

Why doesn’t he just play hockey? He’s literally in every other highlight real, and not for slick hands or amazing goals…

This is why the instigator rule is crap. 30 years ago probie would have beat this kid half to death.

Let us go back even deeper in time.  Gordie would have grabbed Marchand by the shoulder pads and dragged his face along the chain link until he got the message.  Someone needs to spear this dirty player in the spleen with the butt end of his stick.

Jesus. I hope Brad is at least nicer to his wife.
