Bruins star Brad Marchand suspended six games for hit on Penguins' Jarry
Boston Bruins star Brad Marchand was suspended six games by the NHL on Wednesday night for roughing and high-sticking Pittsburgh goalie Tristan Jarry the previous day.
It is Marchand's eighth career suspension and second this season.
Marchand received a match penalty with 25 seconds to play in the Penguins' 4-2 win Tuesday night after throwing a punch at Jarry’s head and poking the goaltender’s mask with his stick as a linesman was escorting him away from the fray.
Marchand sat for three games for slew-footing a Vancouver player in late November.
