Anyway we play the bruins next week and I'll bet if Emelin dispatches one of the black and yellow pukes their board will go ballistic.
Marchand changed levels pretty drastically, which is something that Emelin almost never does. He just bends over and connects hip to hip. Clean as it gets.
I don't think you can hit someone lower than where Marchand hit.
Some bruins fans were actually saying that for it to be clipping, he would have to football tackle Salo in the shins.
