Brad Marchand had one of many worst shootout makes an attempt you will ever seen in an NHL recreation in the course of the Boston Bruins’ loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday, but he isn’t about to take a seat again whereas some fan rips him for it.

With the Bruins needing a objective to maintain the shootout going, Marchand overskated the puck and grazed it with his stick. As a result of he touched the puck, officers ruled that his try counted and the sport was over. Doubtless in response to being trolled, Marchand tweeted a photo on Tuesday that showed him kissing the Stanley Cup.

One among Marchand’s followers, whose profile says he is a beer league hockey player, took that as a chance to heckle Marchand about not with the ability to get the puck on his stick. Marchand responded by calling the man a “peasant” and saying “you fake to be me in your back yard.”

Marchand would in all probability be higher off ignoring the noise after such an embarrassing blunder, but that has by no means been his type. We’ve seen him clap again on social media up to now when a rival brought up his affinity for licking the faces of opposing players, so he’s prepared to defend himself over just about something.
