Your fave Brad Marchand has done it again. Late in the Boston Bruins’ 4-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston forward Marchand punched Pittsburgh goalie Tristan Jarry in the head. Then, after a scrum, he booped Jarry’s snoot with this stick.
So, yeah, he’s definitely getting suspended.
The punch happened in the thick of a play, deep in the Pittsburgh crease.

Marchand was then escorted by officials away from Sidney Crosby, who didn’t react at all to his goalie getting cold-cocked. And on the way out, Marchand did the snootboop heard around the world.

Marchand was given a match penalty, which means the NHL must review his conduct.
So what do you think? Put me down for four games.
Update (2/9, 12:50 PM):
Marchand has been given the opportunity for an in-person hearing for his actions. That means the league could suspend him for five or more games.
Boston’s Brad Marchand has been offered an in-person hearing via Zoom for Roughing/High-sticking Pittsburgh’s Tristan Jarry. Date and time TBD.
