NHL Tells Brad Marchand To Stop Licking Opponents (For Real This Time)

He's at it again.

Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand has received a warning from the National Hockey League about licking the faces of his opponents. The two were jawing at each other, and got in each other's face.

Tampa Bay leads Boston 3-1 in the second-round playoff matchup, so Marchand might not have too many opportunities to lick more opponents this season.

No penalties were assessed on the play.

"All I'm going to say is, there's absolutely no place in our game for that".

"I just said to him, "I could kiss you right now.' His visor was in the way", Marchand said, grinning".

When asked about the incident after the game, Marchand told reporters that he "just wanted to get close to" Komarov.

"I don't know if there is discipline for spitting in someone's face". He then refused to discuss it.

"It's unfortunate that he goes that low to do that, but it doesn't take us off our game". "I don't get it, I don't understand it, I don't". So the league had to come out and say that it told Marchand to stop licking people. Jets forward Adam Lowry said he probably would've punched Marchand - the kind of response the known instigator likely was looking for - while coach Paul Maurice said, "It gives me the willies". "I was more anxious about being there for the scrum after, waiting for explanations from the referees what their call was going to be". Instead, he chose to lick his opponent on the face - and not for the first time.

Boston lost 4-3 in overtime Friday and trails the best-of-7 series 3-1 with Game 5 at Tampa Bay on Sunday (3 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, TVAS). I defended him with that the first time, but now we've reached the point where I think he's physically addicted to licking his opponents. "That happens. But I don't mind goofy".
