Incredibly stupid. Supposed to be a leader and most important game of the year does this shit and puts the rest of his season in jeopardy. He's so good but such and asshole too.

They announced just the major in the building but I wouldn't be surprised if he got the game misconduct too.

Probably getting suspended two games as well. Same thing he did to someone before and this looked worse.

Really just disappointed with him. He deserves the suspension and the game. Stupid fucking idiot.

That doesn't look like intent on the replay, that looks like normal stick battling in front. He wasn't looking at him so it's hard to say he was targeting his junk. But Marchand, so the league will probably fuck us.
Come on. He knew exactly what he was doing.

Like the last time Marchand had a review? And didn't get any additional penalty?

Suspend his stupid ass. He deserves it for being a jackass far too often. God he pisses me off. If he wasn't a bruin, he'd be one of my least favorite players in the league.

Marchand has the rep for sure. Really stupid move. All things being equal. If Sidney did this it is only 2 minutes.

Stupid move but any suspension would be out of whack with how the NHL has addressed similar incidents in the past. 5 and a game is already a lot more than most people have gotten for groin shots. That being said...who knows with the NHL discipline process.

May be semantic, but he didn't really get a game. The game came with the major.
He'll be lucky if he plays again in the regular season.

We will see but I don't see any examples of anyone ever receiving a suspension for a groin shot and it happens 2-3 times every year. Every one I can find is a fine or nothing, do you have any examples where someone was suspended for this?

Five white jerseys around the net and Stafford gets it, moves it to his backhand, and roofs it. Great play.

So -- Moore now on the Bergeron line?

Might rotate, depending on what they need. Pasta for offense, Moore for defense. Probably don't want 1 guy double shifting or to bench the 4th line altogether.
