Boston fans were treated to a surprisingly entertaining night of hockey between the league-best Bruins and the stinky Montreal Canadiens. Big part of that was some good-old-fashioned crispiness.
Especially crispy was Brad Marchand, who was quick to tune up the Habs’ Rem Pitlick after the latter took a late run at Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron. Marchand tackled Pitlick to the ice and got some shots in before the officials separated them. Thankfully, USA Today photographer Paul Rutherford was able to capture a truly epic shot of Marchand, locked and loaded, which you can see in the above image.
