‘They definitely push the boys away’ – CBS Boston

BOSTON (CBS) – Bruins winger Brad Marchand dominated Sunday night against the Canucks, scoring a match-fixing goal and providing a key assist for the lead, both all came in the third inning of Boston’s 3-2 win. .

The development has certainly upset many Canucks in Vancouver as Marchand has never been the most popular player in British Columbia, since his and the Bruins’ Stanley Cup win over the Canucks in 2011.

The long list of Vancouverites who hate Marchand apparently includes the TV commentator, as former Bruin and current country analyst Anson Carter pointed out on Twitter during the match:

(The person who commented in the question reject Carter’s assessment, for what it’s worth.)

After the match, Marchand – a native of Nova Scotia – was asked about the commentator’s thoughts as well as Carter’s assertion that the Canadian players did not want to go to Canada to play.

“I think the important thing in Canada is that they are very, very passionate about the game. It certainly is – and not just the fans. Hockey is a way of life in Canada,” said Marchand. “That’s just, it is so. As soon as you can walk, you’re wearing skates. Lakes are always frozen in Canada, so there’s always ice and ponds and the like. So it’s a way of life. There are many passionate fans for their team. ”

Marchand goes on to explain how that passion can manifest itself in different ways.

“I think it’s like bleeding into it. I mean, there’s a lot of cases where teams don’t play well in Canada, which makes it difficult for the players,” said Marchand. “Their families are picked up, their children are picked up at school. So, you know, fans can be a big part of why teams don’t achieve success. Because they many times torment the players. They definitely push the boys away to get to teams that don’t have that kind of fan base. So sometimes the fans out there need to look in the mirror too.”

Outside of the short-term tournaments they are forced to take an interest in him, Canadian hockey fans in general aren’t eager to listen to Marchand at all. So some thinking about yourself in the north is unlikely to follow the 33-year-old’s suggestion.

Still, for a Canadian-born player who has succeeded and survived the Original Six market in the US, Marchand’s point is interesting, to say the least. ‘They definitely push the boys away’ – CBS Boston
