Brad Marchand roasts Leafs in postgame interview following Game 7

Published May 5, 2024 at 1:59 PM

After that nail-biting Game 7 between the Boston Bruins and the Toronto Maple Leafs, Brad Marchand couldn't resist taking one last jab at the Leafs. David Pastrnak, the night's hero, sealed the deal with a fantastic overtime goal at 1:54, cutting across the crease and scoring with a backhand move that left everyone in awe.

Hampus Lindholm's game-tying goal set the stage for Pastrnak's heroics with a perfect setup from an intentional dump-in. Pastrnak made a slick move, leaving Mitch Marner and Morgan Reilly behind to grab that loose puck and deliver the winning shot.

Marchand couldn't resist poking fun at the Leafs' slogan "Just Beleaf," highlighting the Bruins' unwavering confidence.

It's been decades since the Leafs have prevailed over the Bruins in a series, with the last instance dating back to 1959. The Bruins avoided a historic collapse after leading 3-1 in the series, a feat no professional sports team has managed in consecutive seasons.

As the Bruins prepare to face the Florida Panthers in the second round, Marchand faces yet another significant challenge. To secure victory, he must maintain the same intensity and determination showcased against Toronto. With the Panthers adopting the playoff slogan "Time to Hunt," the upcoming battle promises to be fierce. And if the Bruins emerge triumphant once more, Marchand's penchant for injecting post-game celebrations with his trademark humor is bound to shine through once again.
