peaceandlovesports Hello??? Human fly over here!!!
This may come as a surprise to some people but Boston Bruins captain Brad Marchand is currently cheating. Marchand is in clear violation of the NHL'S official rulebook... Section 3 - Equipment: Rule 9.3!!! Marchand must fix his jersey before he is allowed on the ice for Game 3. We have rules for a reason! #Suspend BradMarchand #WarAndHateAthletics

This appears to be a complete non-issue and overall a large amount of copium coming from a fan base in Toronto who likely knows their season is over as early as tonight. It is also not surprising to see a fan base to after Marchand, a player who has been under the Leafs skin for the entire series.

Just for fun, Marchand isn't the only Bruins player to face accusations of cheating.

Game 5 of the series happens tonight in Boston as the Maple Leafs look to keep their season alive.
