Marchand Chirps Back At Fan After Botched Shootout Attempt



Brad Marchand

Boston Bruins winger Brad Marchand may be one the most active chirpers of the last decade in the NHL and in recent years has had some fun chirping the legions of critics and haters he has social media for being the pest he is on the ice. Marchand’s botched shootout attempt, with the game on the line in the Bruins’ 6-5 shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers immediately went viral on social media late Tuesday night and into Tuesday morning.

After happily engaging with fans and media on a broad scale in with a fun tone, by tweeting a picture of himself hoisting the Stanley Cup in 2011, with a wink emoji, Marchand snapped back at a fan who claimed not even he could mishandle a puck so bad with the game on the line, calling the fan a “peasant”.


Marchand was not only the mocked on Twitter and Instagram but also on sports talk shows across North America. After he appeared to let it get under his skin, the hate towards the NHL’s fifth-best points man with 63 and third best assist man with 43 helpers, flowed freely and with more vitriol than before.


Marchand and the Bruins are in Columbus Tuesday night with a shot at redemption against the Blue Jackets. In case you’ve been in a cave all day, here’s the embarrassing shootout attempt that even if Marchand won the Hart Trophy – which he has a chance to do this season – and/or another Stanley Cup, he may never live down.
