“It’s embarrassing. They had 30 minutes, 20 minutes to sit there, view the tape and call it in,” Marchand said immediately after the game. “But they made me come out in a 2-1 game as we’re starting to get momentum. To do that, guys up there busy eating pizza and cheeseburgers, and can’t watch the game. So maybe next time he’ll pull his head out of his butt and watch the game.”
In addition to Marchand, Patrice Bergeron (lower body) and Brett Ritchie (upper body) didn’t practice Saturday and will not play against Montreal on Sunday. Marchand is questionable.
