Marchand refused and after the game, Eller called him out.
“Obviously, he didn’t want any part of it. Everybody saw,” Eller said. “I don’t think there’s a lot of integrity in his game.”
Eller added, “Can’t fight a guy that doesn’t want to fight. Everybody saw what he is. I don’t know what else to say. We got out of here with two points. We got what we wanted.”
TJ Oshie also criticized Marchand.
“I was a little let down that Marchand didn’t drop his gloves,” Oshie said. “Since the other way, Lars got jumped, but I don’t know the guy. I don’t know. You can kind of take away from that and speculate however you’d like.”
