10:17PM: Arthur Staple writes in The Athletic that Marchand made “russian-centric comments” toward Panarin.


Both Panarin and Marchand were given 10-minute misconducts.

Brad Marchand said after the game of the incident, “We were just asking each other how Thanksgiving was, and he didn’t like what I ate.” (Stephenson)

Gerard Gallant

  • Did Marchand say something across the line, “I have no idea. I’m at the other end of the bench, I got no clue.”
  • Were you surprised to see that, “Marchand is a great player in this league, but I have no idea what happened. I just see both of them get tossed out and I’m trying to coach the game to the end.”

Ryan Strome was asked if Marchand crossed the line and said, “Yea, I mean, I just don’t want to comment, I just don’t think it’s my place. I guess we’ll see what happens.” (NYR)
