Boston Bruins captain Brad Marchand continues to stir up controversy, this time with his aggressive behavior towards the referee during game 6 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

In game 5, Marchand engaged in a heated exchange with referees after a trip, resulting in him being body-slammed by a referee.

According to NHL rules, any deliberate physical force against an official should result in a game misconduct penalty. Despite this, Marchand's actions have gone unpunished, leaving many questioning the fairness of the situation.

40.1 Game Misconduct – Any player who deliberately applies physical force in any manner against an official, in any manner attempts to injure an official, physically demeans, or deliberately applies physical force to an official solely for the purpose of getting free of such an official during or immediately following an altercation shall receive a game misconduct penalty.

As the Bruins continue to struggle on the ice, Marchand's behavior raises questions. Is he attempting to rally his team with his antics, or is he simply letting his emotions dictate his actions?

The playoff atmosphere is intense, with high stakes and escalating tensions. All eyes are on both teams as they navigate the pressure and fallout from Marchand's controversial behavior.

Either the Bruins are going to blow a second straight 3-1 series lead or the Leafs are going to lose a sixth straight Game 7.

Incredible cinema.

Saturday night is going to be a hell of a night!
