Re: Eller's not a fighter though
There's no question it was a bit of a d*ck move by Marchand, but he's essentially the king of d*ck moves. Marchy would never fight a big guy who knows how to fight... so when Eller chirped at the Boston bench, it was the perfect opportunity for him. Having said that, I didn't expect him to land such solid punches. There's probably some old history with Eller since he used to play on les habitants.
Yeah, of course the first game of the year is always generally meaningless, but I'm sure Caps fans had a great time. Both the Caps and Bruins are top teams in the east. I'm sure it will be more competitive when they meet again.
That should be a good one between Pitt and Wash tonight.
