Brad Marchand is playing in the Winter Classic on January 1st and he’s super stoked about it. He’s got family going to Notre Dame Stadium, though not as much as last time, when he ended up not playing due to suspension. He’s hoping to not due anything to jeopardize his chance to play this time.
You see, Brad has not had the best luck with regards to playing in this big outdoor game. In 2010, he missed the WC after being sent down to Providence beforehand and getting injured. In 2016, he was suspended due to actions in the game prior to the game at Gillette. (If you ask me, Borowiecki probably deserved that hit.)
Anyway, Brad is trying to make sure he stays on his (mostly) best behavior, probably following Melania Trumps vague and garbled Be Best message, despite having all the penalty minutes this season. (He must be a beast in fantasy hockey this season since he wants to have all the points, too.)
Anyway, hockey returns tonight with the Bruins taking on the Devils at the Garden. Brad, behave! We want to see you rock that game!
