Brad Marchand doesn’t seem to have any problems getting in the kitchen of many players lately. Brad Marchand goes completely savage on Cam Atkinson’s stick during the OT portion of game 1 in the Boston Columbus series.
During a faceoff just outside the Columbus Blue Jacket zone Brad Marchand breaks Cam Atkinson’s stick. Just as the ref was waiting out the Bruins centre the little rat Marchand crunched Atkinson’s stick.
Atkinson didn’t appear to happy as he pleaded to the linesman before he went to the bench to get a new twig.

When the feisty winger came back he bumped Marchand and then Marchand appeared to club him right back in the upper chest.
Unbelievably the ref never called anything on either player and the B’s ended up scoring to take a 1-0 series lead in the best of 7.
Marchand after the game when speaking to reporters blamed Atkinson for trying to dull up his blade.
If this type of play continues it will be a good series for the fans.
