Bruins clinch playoff berth with 4-0 win over Lightning

Bruins clinch playoff berth with 4-0 win over Lightning

The play has earned him a hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety on Thursday morning and a suspension seems likely. Remember, this is the same guy that has already been suspended on six different occasions in his NHL career and earlier this campaign was fined $10,000 (the maximum allowed by the league) for slew-footing an opponent (his old standby move). Late in the second period, Marchand pulls the exact same move he pulled on Kronwall just before the break on Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman.

On Tuesday, just to prove he doesn't have anything against Swedish defenseman, Marchand took things to the next level.

The incident happened in the final minute of the first period Tuesday after Marchand and Dotchin became wrapped up in the crease. After Dotchin pushed Marchand out of Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy'ss crease, Marchand turned and speared Dotchin in the groin. Jake Dotchin was able to rejoin his teammates on the ice when the team returned from the first intermission.

Drew Stafford recorded the game-winning goal versus Tampa Bay on Tuesday night to help Boston qualify for the playoffs. With only two games left in the regular season, there's a decent chance Marchand is suspended until the playoffs begin.

It's because Yzerman's trades opened positions for younger players to fill that the Lightning had a resurgence, and made many in the National Hockey League look over their shoulders and pray that Tampa Bay wouldn't make the postseason.

While spearing incidents have usually led to fines and other forms of discipline, suspensions are not usually doled out for the infraction. After their disappointing shutout loss to the Boston Bruins, the Lightning's playoff hopes are hanging by a thread. The first is against the Lightning, who are only four points behind the Bruins with a game in hand. Sure, the goals and assists are there, but to be the complete package he can't keep doing this.

North Carolina bill rejects Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage
House Bill 780 , which was proposed by four North Carolina House Republicans, is titled the " Uphold Historical Marriage Act ". A bill introduced Tuesday claims that the nation's highest court overstepped its authority with its 2015 gay-marriage ruling.

"It was an undisciplined penalty - there's no question about that", Marchand said.

Marchand, who has scored 39 goals this season, will not miss any playoff games.

"We want all our players on the ice from start to finish, it's that simple", he said.
