The Boston Bruins have come out with some great mic’d up moments in the past week, thanks in part to the guy you’d expect to put on a show with his lip: Brad Marchand.
Watch below to see Marchand get crispy with the Penguins’ Jake Guentzel after the latter took a little cheap shot at Brandon Carlo during the Winter Classic, from the newest episode of “Behind the B” released earlier this week. “What the f**k are you gonna do? Touch him again!” he dared. Marchand later got to the faceoff and told Bryan Rust on Guentzel: “I was actually gonna let him sleep tonight, ’til he did that.”
Next, Marchand chirps at someone on the Penguins, ostensibly defenseman Jan Rutta: “No one f***in’ wanted you! You’re awful!” That seems mean. But that’s some God-tier trash talk, if your goal is to get inside the other guy’s head. Rutta went undrafted and signed with the Pens in the off-season, so a comment like that could cut deep.
