Brad Marchand not happy with ‘terrible’ ice at TD Garden
Brad Marchand has not been a fan of the ice at TD Garden in Boston during the Bruins’ first-round playoff series with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The Bruins beat the Leafs 4-2 in Game 6 of the series in Toronto on Sunday. The series heads back to Boston for Game 7 on Tuesday, and it seems like Marchand doesn’t view that as an advantage.
The winger called the ice in the building “terrible” and said the puck hasn’t been moving well there.
Brad Marchand not loving the ice conditions at TD Garden in the postseason: "They've played really well in our building so far this series and the ice has been terrible there so we might as well play with a tennis ball, skate around and see who can bounce one in the net."

Marchand has been huge for the Bruins. He has scored four goals and has nine points in the series, but he has found more success in Toronto than Boston lately.
He had three points in Games 4 and 6 in Toronto, while he was shutout in a Game 5 loss at home. The Bruins better hope he hasn’t psyched himself out about playing at TD Garden.
