"Arvidsson takes hit from Marchand #NHLBruins #GoKingsGo"




Marchand was not pulled from the game following this incident, but given the brutality of this hit, it is still potentially up for review by the Department of Player Safety. Fans have presently taken to X to express their disapproval of the hit and are expecting a suspension themselves.

"Dirty hit by Marchand. No answer from LA. wtf? Come on NHL. Clean hit and a fight. Cheap shot and nothing. Not only is the PWHL getting bigger crowds but they are sticking up for each other. Full cages soon for NHL. Losing the culture and the game"


Stay tuned as the story continues to develop.
