Bruins call Garnet Hathaway’s hit on Brad Marchand dirty. David Pastrnak: ‘He’s that kind of player.’
The Boston Bruins beat the Washington Capitals 4-3 on Thursday. But talk after the game in the Bruins locker room centered on a hit Garnet Hathaway threw on Brad Marchand that knocked the Bruins’ winger out of the game.
Hathaway took a two-minute minor for interference after decking Marchand into the boards. Marchand, who could be seen icing his shoulder/sternum area on the bench, tried to return, but after a few awkward shifts, decided he couldn’t finish the game. Marchand had only 8:54 of ice time on the evening.
The Bruins called it an upper-body injury.
