Bruins’ Brad Marchand clowns teammate over LeBron James celebration
Boston Bruins left wing Brad Marchand got a real kick out of his teammate’s LeBron James impression during Tuesday’s win over the Chicago Blackhawks.
In the first period of Boston’s eventual 4-2 victory in the NHL’s 2019 Winter Classic, Bruins right wing David Pastrnak scored on a power play and proceeded to hit the LeBron James stomp celebration. Take a look:

Addressing reporters after the game, Marchand clowned Pastrnak by saying that he was thrown off by the celebration and remarking that Pastrnak and James were obviously similar, per Matt Porter of the Boston Globe.
Marchand on Pastrnak's celebration: "I was a little thrown off. I've never seen him do that before."
After learning Pastrnak was copying LeBron: "Well, Pasta and LeBron are very similar."

For his part, Marchand also had a solid celebration of his own after the win:

As for Bron’s celebration, we have probably seen it done better in other sports, but Pastrnak at least gets an “A” for effort here.
