Brad Marchand might be out due to COVID Protocols for the Boston Bruins right now, but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying him on social media.
The Bruins left winger was at it again this week when he took a page from Jimmy Kimmel’s book and read some funny mean tweets sent his way on social media. Marchand has been known to respond to the haters in the past, even so far as calling them “peasants” when he’s feeling particularly frisky. And this humble hockey writer has experienced Marchand dropping the twitter hammer on him as well in the past.
So, it’s good to see that Marchand can take it all in good humor when somebody tweets “I’d love to see Zee throw the Rat into the fourth row of seats.”
Most athletes: I don’t read mean tweets.

If Boston Bruins fans can’t see Marchand playing this weekend (with his status for Sunday against the New Jersey Devils up in the air at this point), at least they can chuckle at him on social media.
Now on to the puck links:
*It sounds like teams are calling on Taylor Hall, and the St. Louis Blues are being linked to the underperforming Buffalo Sabres winger. How are the Blues seemingly in on everybody that becomes available, and the Boston Bruins aren’t? (Kukla’s Korner)
*Speaking of the Boston Bruins, they were able to pull out a Saturday afternoon win against the Buffalo Sabres with a big performance from the second line of Nick Ritchie, David Krejci and Craig Smith kicking in the offense. (Boston Hockey Now)
*Key coaching moves from Vegas hockey coach Pete DeBoer were behind a Saturday victory for the Vegas Golden Knights. (Vegas Hockey Now)
*So, what are NHL players doing for meals when they’re on the road now that they can’t go out for team dinners due to COVID-19 restrictions? Inquiring minds want to know. (Chicago Sun-Times)
*Wow, five overtimes last night before University of Minnesota-Duluth took down the University of North Dakota in the NCAA tournament. What a game!

*Congrats to the Boston Pride taking home the Isobel Cup after winning at Warrior Ice Arena this weekend. Take a bow, ladies! FOH (Friend of Haggs) Marisa Ingemi has the story on the Pride winning the Cup. (Sportsnet)
*For something completely different: This plea from FOH Josh Gondelman to have actors with hair stop playing bald characters is brilliant. (The Ringer)
