Brad Marchand never has been one to shy away from speaking his mind.
And that held true Sunday afternoon.
The Boston Bruins defeated the New York Rangers 3-1 at Madison Square Garden. Marchand and Rangers defenseman Ryan Lindgren exchanged pleasantries twice during the game. But it was Marchand who got the last word.
“He’s not going to be a player that’s going to have a very long career,” Marchand said, via NESN. “I’m not overly concerned about him. He’s a good, steady defenseman. … All the best to him, hope he does a great job. But I can’t see it.”

If you remember, the Bruins traded Lindgren to the Rangers with Ryan Spooner and Matt Beleskey in 2018 for Rick Nash.
