A seventh suspension for Brad Marchand

Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand was suspended Monday for the seventh time, this time for three games, after tripping Vancouver Canucks defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson.

In a one-on-one battle on Sunday, Marchand tipped his opponent by placing his leg behind the latter’s. He was not punished on the sequence.

Marchand then scored the equalizer, then he set up the victory against the Canadian club. The Bruins won 3-2.

Marchand is therefore seven times in his career, including twice for tripping. With this new suspension, he will have missed 22 games due to these various sanctions. The last dated back to January 25, 2018 for an elbow in the face of Marcus Johansson.

The little Bruins plague has scored nine goals and totaled 24 points in 18 games since the start of the campaign.
