A odd history of Brad Marchand kissing and licking National Hockey League players

The Lightning are not pleased with Brad Marchand.

Senior vice president of hockey operations Colin Campbell spoke to Marchand and Bruins general manager Don Sweeney on Saturday about Marchand's actions against Tampa Bay a night earlier.

The league denied speaking with Marchand about the first incident, but Marchand got another lick in during Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Told that Callahan compared licking to spitting and said it should be penalized accordingly, Marchand said: "That's cute".

In Game 1 of Boston's first-round series against the Maple Leafs, Marchand licked the neck of Toronto forward Leo Komarov.

Even if the Tories had lost all of the 13 seats up for grabs, their majority would have remained intact. This included all 32 London boroughs and every ward in Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, and Newcastle.

"I don't know what the difference between that is and spitting in somebody's face", Callahan said of Marchand's licking.

Since Friday's game, people have had mixed reviews over Marchand's actions. So the league had to come out and say that it told Marchand to stop licking people. "But to me it's worse, if not the same". He was suspended five games earlier this season for elbowing the Devils' Marcus Johansson, a ban that bridged the NHL's All-Star break in Tampa where Marchand, allowed to participate in the festivities, was heartily booed and embraced his villain roll, repeatedly egging on the crowd.

The NHL's threat of supplemental discipline should be enough to curtail such behavior for the rest of the playoffs. Coach Jon Cooper hoped that Marchand's face wash on Callahan were his last licks. I don't understand it.

When asked why he took the unorthodox approach, Marchand said that Callahan "punched me four times in the face, so, you know, he just kept getting close. nothing big", ESPN reported. "Right from the chin all the way up, there's just no place in the game for that".
