Poor Marcus Johansson. He joined the Bruins just a week ago and he’s already injured. As it turns out, it was a fairly serious injury.

Johansson spent the night at MGH after being knocked out of Tuesdays game with a forceful shoulder-to-shoulder hit by Micheal Ferland. As it turns out, Johansson has a lung contusion, which is basically a bruised lung that complicates breathing and oxygen transmission. He’ll be re-evaluated in a week.

In the meantime, the Bruins took their group photo today on the Garden ice. Since Johansson was still in the hospital, a sweater filler was needed to take his place, presumably to photoshop his head on the body later.


If you haven’t been following the master troll job that Brad Marchand committed on Twitter, you’ve missed out on a lot of drama from Toronto.

This is what Marchy tweeted:

And he was accused of everything from tampering to driving up the price on the Leafs. Toronto Maple Leafs GM Kyle Dubas had something to say about it.

As if the Leafs own real estate in Marchy’s head. As if!

Thankfully, this is being noticed by national media who can understand what this is: trolling as branding.

I’m so glad Brad’s on our team!

I’m loving Marchand changing from on-ice pest to internet troll.

Morning all. The Marcy/Krug Twitter feud is the best thing on the internet.

It’ll be spilling over onto Instagram soon. Wonder if Zee will get involved …

I like to think Chara just shakes his head at these two.
