Boston Bruins vs. Ottawa Senators - 4/6/17 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Adjust Comment Print

The Boston Bruins, Tampa Bay Lightning, Ottawa Senators, Toronto Maple Leafs are all fighting for these spots, so which team will be left behind?

Clarke MacArthur made his season debut for the Senators and played his first game since October 14, 2015, because of concussion issues. The team will reconvene for the first time since their playoff-clinching win against the Lightning on Thursday when the Bruins take on the Ottawa Senators. He was caught spearing Jake Dotchin with his hockey stick. Not only were the Bruins forced to kill off a five minute major penalty for Marchand's actions, and to the great credit of the penalty kill units, they did, but the spearing incident will be reviewed by the league, and that could cost Marchand a suspension at just the wrong time.

The play came just over two months after he was fined $10,000 on January 26 for what the Department dubbed a "dangerous trip" on Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Krownwall.

But they could have used Marchand to secure these points and, if they wind up playing the potent Caps in the first round, the B's MVP this year would bear quite a bit of responsibility for that. The league is happy that it looks like they punished him. This is not light contact. He had been suspended four times for a total of 12 games before this ban. He's also been fined three times totaling $17,500 for slew-footing, roughing and the risky trip. Once Boston quickly established possession in the Lightning zone, Riley Nash slid a pass between a kneeling Anton Stralman to a wide-open David Pastrnak (who was inexplicably not covered by the closest Lightning player...which was Drouin) who promptly put a one-timer underneath Vasilevskiy's blocker to make it 2-0.

He had a hearing with NHL Player Safety on Thursday morning.

"I know there will be more conversations with him, as the season progresses and we get into the playoffs, but we'll see how he responds to it". The Bruins have three games left and all are incredibly important.

Even as Marchand has become a standout offensive player, starring on a line with Sidney Crosby and Patrice Bergeron on Canada's gold medal-winning World Cup squad before his 39-goal season with the Bruins, he clearly hasn't learned to respect his opponents. Instead of growing his stardom and reputation after being on that global stage, he's facing supplemental discipline this season - again.
