The Boston Bruins were eliminated in five games by the Lightning and their season ended only a few days ago. Now the licking regret has set in.
Brad Marchand initially took the position that his licking was not a big deal, and gave some blowback against the NHL issuing after they issued a formal warning indicating any further licking antics would be “dealt with by way of supplemental discipline.” Marchand said the whole controversy was “pretty stupid”
Now he’s changing his tune, and has said he’s going to cut it out.
Brad Marchand said he needs to take a look in the mirror: “I’ve got to cut that [expletive] out.”

Some funny tweets ensued, and let’s be honest, this whole controversy is pretty ridiculous.. Licking and hockey is a no-no. Licking in any sport is just wrong.

The guy can skate, stick handle, shoot and irritate without spearing, kneeing, or licking. No doubt here.

Let's take a look at "Brad Marchand says…." and compare it with "Brad Marchand does…" and see if we have any matches

Just blowing smoke… trolling the NHL disciplinary authority because he knows they won't do anything to him. He'll do it again, say he's sorry, and laugh when they give him a slap on the wrist, or another "warning" pic.twitter.com/aNWSVfkQCz

The first step is admitting you have a problem

As long as his wife doesn’t mind the licking, maybe he can sneak in a lick or two while on the ice. This whole lick situation is comical.
