What happened to consent in a fight? This is garbage.
I understand that players get angry or want other players to pay for their prior "dirty" plays, but this is obnoxious. They're down 0-7. You expect to be taunted. Grow up.
Marchand had 7 fighting majors before this. Lars Eller? 0. Real tough.
Personally, I get that Marchand wanted to stick up for his own, and his team's, pride. But, the penalty for this kind of retaliation should be more than a few games. I don't want to see this stuff become commonplace and watch players go down with concussions. This could seriously ruin careers...and lives.
