Lightning look to eliminate Bruins in 5

Grant SmithMay 06, 2018

As Brad Marchand continues tongue lashing his opponents, his latest victim says it's time the Bruins agitator was penalized for his actions.

Just reading that sentence is gross, right?

"He punched me four times in the face", Marchand said. Sportsnet insider Elliotte Friedman reported in his "31 Thoughts" that the National Hockey League had told Marchand not to lick players, and, after blowback from Marchand himself, Greg Wyshinski from ESPN independently confirmed it.

From this point on, Brad Marchand has been banned from showing his sloppy affections for opponents.

The league says Marchand has been put on notice that his actions are unacceptable and that similar behavior in the future will be dealt with through supplemental discipline.

The Bruins are not happy with the officiating in the series.

Krug left Game 4 on Friday night after crashing into the boards in the third period.

The series has gone back and forth, just like Friday's game, which saw the Lightning jump ahead 2-0, only to have Boston rally back for a 3-2 lead. Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy told reporters after the game that Krug had a lower body injury and would be evaluated further.

"I'm just cheering for us", he said. "It's game after game after game".

Boston forward Rick Nash, asked about the play in question, said "It's probably a better question for the officials ... it looked clear from where I was". "We're going to miss Torey, obviously". D Torey Krug is out with a left ankle injury.

Jon Cooper cherishes his battered 1974 Bobby Orr hockey card, collected when he was a boy, later signed in ballpoint pen in the mid-1980s by the legendary Boston Bruins defenseman in Vancouver and preserved by the Tampa Bay Lightning coach since that day in a small gold frame. Krug, who had a superb regular season with 14 goals and 45 assists, is having tests to determine how severe the injury is. Boston hasn't scored an even-strength goal in the last two games, and the Lightning have continued to score despite the Bruins effectively containing Nikita Kucherov and Stamkos for much of the series.
