Boston Bruins' Brad Marchand calls out Tampa Bay Lightning's Victor Hedman

Fighting words?

Lightning D Victor Hedman "had it coming," Bruins C Brad Marchand said of Milan Lucic's punch to Hedman's face late in the third period of Game 1. Marchand didn't elaborate, and Hedman said he had "no idea" what Marchand was talking about. "He's always one of those guys that likes to talk a lot on the ice," Hedman said. So, take this for what it's worth: "(Hedman) was acting like he wanted to go back at (Lucic)," Marchand said. "I don't think that would be advised."

Quote to note

"For some reason, everybody (seems) to think that we have to adjust to them. We don't believe that. We have our game. We have our team. We've gotten this far. We believe in what we do. … Whatever they want to do, those are their decisions. From our end of it, we've got to stay sharp and put the right people on the ice."

Bruins coach Claude Julien

  1. Rays journal: Jake Odorizzi goes on 10-day DL with back strain

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Jake Odorizzi is hoping his struggles this season can be tied directly to the lower-back strain he has tried to pitch through since spring training. Toward that end, the Rays placed Odorizzi on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday retroactive to Tuesday.

    It is going to get interesting tonight when the Rays begin a four-game series against the Yankees in New York. The Rays feel they are good enough to win the East Division. These next four games and the four that follow in Houston will be a good measuring stick.

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.
