Boston Bruins winger Brad Marchand is officially engaged in some heated twitter trash talk with the Carolina Hurricanes.
It all started on Tuesday when Vincent Trocheck made a “rat” quip about Marchand ahead of that night’s game between the Bruins and Hurricanes at TD Garden. The Nose Face Killah responded with a trademark Marchand chirp that elevated the conversation to sports cars.

Predictably that wasn’t the end of it as the Hurricanes subtweeted Marchand on Wednesday after the Hurricanes doled out a 7-1 loss to the Black and Gold. And Marchand again stepped it up a notch about a Hurricanes team that hasn’t exactly been packing the house over the last couple of seasons in Raleigh/Durham.

You’re still the reason we pay 20% in escrow

It’s game, set and Marchand in my book, but then again, the Hurricanes are 2-0-0 and have outscored the Bruins by a 10-1 margin in the two games. And that’s really the only won-loss column that anybody cares about it in the NHL world.
Now on to the BHN Puck Links:
*Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy had a pretty succinct explanation for Tuesday night’s 7-1 loss to the Hurricanes: “We had nothing.” (Boston Hockey Now)
*It’s also again worth noting that Willie O’Ree is getting all of his deserved accolades and awards for his NHL trailblazing and a remarkable life well-lived in his 86 years.
Going gold! 👏

*Interesting piece from FOH (Friend of Haggs) Scott Burnside about the tit-for-tat with Leon Draisaitl and Jim Matheson during an Oilers zoom availability. I think we can all agree something like this wouldn’t have been a big deal before the dawn of the Zoom era. (Dailyfaceoff.com)
