Boston Bruins left winger Brad Marchand taunted the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night by kissing his finger.
“Funny thing was, he was asking Richie where his ring was. I think Richie has a ring.
“It was just no class. I’ve said it before, you win with class, you lose with class.”
Probably realizing his mistake, he tried to redeem himself in the third period with the Bruins down 4-1 by making a Stanley Cup raising motion—like he’s the only one to ever win one.
“I mean, he’s a great player. It’s too bad he has to act like he hates us all the time.”
Bruins head coach Claude Julien was not pleased about his player’s antics either.
“The perception it gives our organization is not what you want to see with those kind of things and again I don’t know what he said to you guys but it’s certainly something we are going to deal with,” Julien said.
“From what I hear, what happened, that’s definitely not something we will accept in our organization.”
Claude Julien not thrilled with Marchand’s antics with ring finer, etc. Guessing there’s a chat coming between coach and player…
