Well at least the Bruins won the fight.
Blown out in their season-opener by the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals on the Capitals' banner-raising night Wednesday, the Bruins hardly presented any resistance during their 7-0 loss.
“His celebration, it was unnecessary,” Marchand told the media in D.C. “He took an angle in front of our bench and celebrated in a 7-0 game. So, I just let him know.”
Eller had scored the seventh goal of the game with 9:08 remaining.
The Bruins beefs with Eller go back to the forward’s days with the Montreal Canadiens.
The fight aside, the Bruins have a lot to correct before they get back in action on Thursday night in Buffalo. Marchand seemed confident the Bruins could turn the page.
“It’s [expletive]’ one game, it’s nothing,” he said. “We’ll let it go and worry about tomorrow tomorrow.”
