  • 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)
