07:10 AM ET 05.02 | For Bruins fans, Brad Marchand was at his irritating best Wednesday night as the Bruins grabbed a 1-0 series lead over Toronto. The pesky forward was in on a few post-whistle scrums, he had a [chat] or two with Toronto forward Phil Kessel, and he also got into it with Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk. The confrontation with van Riemsdyk led to a little funny business. ... "He speared me in the privates, so I kind of reacted," Marchand flatly stated after the game. "Plain and simple." It's actually not the first time Marchand has had some issues with sticks in that region. Marchand accused Washington's Jason Chimera of spearing him there in last year's playoffs, an incident that actually led Chimera to apologize to Marchand.

With a beauty of a baseball swing...

In my opinion, it looks like Marchand and Franck Ribery were brothers, separated at birth!

Who would know a cheap shot better when he sees one than another cheap shot artist?

On behalf of the only Leaf who played worth a crap last night, thank you all for your support. And since I brought the topic up, if Marchand wore one, he might not be so worried about his itsy bitsy private parts

You Leafs fans need to worry less about Marchand and more about your team.

Marchand loves getting under other players skin, didn't seem to take it so well when it comes the other way

I wanted to spear him in the nuts too.

They're all just envious of the fact that they don't have a player like Marchand on their teams.

Not really a criticism. Guys that get everybody worked up throw the other team off their game and the results are usually good for them. That's why the Avery hung around for so long. Best thing to do to an agitator is wait until a meaningless part of the game before trying to "get even". Game two will tell everybody if the series will go beyond 4 or 5 games. :)
