Brad Marchand Continues to Pester Canucks, Vancouver Fan Base Alike


June 9, 2011

Brad Marchand may be public enemy No. 1 in Canada. After a goal and an assist in Monday's 8-1 romp, Marchand paid another visit to the red light district in the Bruins Game 4 win.

In addition, Marchand has been a pest for the Sedin twins — Henrik Sedin was on the end of some casual slashing before a faceoff, while Daniel Sedin was upended by the Canadian national.

Marchand's play has some of the Vancouver faithful debating the difference between the way the Canucks carry themselves and the way the Bruins do.

"Marchand will be lauded as some kind of folk hero, yet with less than three minutes left, in a game he is leading 4-0, he tries a close line on [Christian] Ehrhoff, then instead of standing up to noted pugilist Daniel Sedin, he goes for the clip and gets penalized for that too," wrote one Canucks blogger on "Keith Ballard may have upped his dismal number from me tonight just by going after the little son of a bitch. The 'dusting the hands' move past the bench was noticed by the reaction. Maybe he just does not care if the Canucks are angry at him. We will see on Friday if they remember and do something about it on the scoreboard, instead of letting him get under their skin.

"That being said, I would love him if he was on my team!  But man that is tough to watch sometimes."
