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

    “At first I was kind of nervous,” Toafili said of playing varsity. “But as I started to fit in more … I started to feel more confident.”
