DeAngelo comments stick-throwing incident involving Marchand

TONY DEANGELO COMMENTS ON STICK-THROWING INCIDENT INVOLVING BRAD MARCHAND IN GAME FOUR

MAY 9, 2022  (17H42)      TIM TUCKER
Having Brad Marchand of the Boston Bruins and Tony DeAngelo of the Carolina Hurricanes involved in the same series pretty much guaranteed some tense moments. Game four of the Bruins-Canes series didn't disappoint in that sense at all. Marchand and DeAngelo were at each other all game, and it's likely that will continue until the series ends. At one point, with the Bruins up 4-2, Marchand got a breakaway on an empty net. DeAngelo attempted to stop Marchand from scoring by throwing his stick.


While the move doesn't draw a penalty in the rulebooks, it does mean an automatic goal if the stick prevents the puck from going in the net. Asked to comment on the situation Monday DeAngelo said he's aware of that.

"It's gonna be a goal anyway, so it counts. I would rather knock off the puck, just to...if it knocks off his stick it's gonna count as a goal anyway, so would you rather see it go in the net or go wide? It is what it is. It doesn't bother me that you can't do it," said DeAngelo.

Asked what was going on between him and Marchand in the game, DeAngelo said "nothing."

"Just playoff hockey. All good," said DeAngelo.

"We were losing the game, right? Obviously we're a little frustrated. I don't think anything happened. Nothing happened. Everyone wants to write a little story aboutit or something, but we're trying to win a series here. So, if you don't have any fire, you're not going to win. So I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing. I'm not very concerned about what anyone thinks."

DeAngelo's statement that nothing happened between him and Marchand isn't exactly true. At one point in the game, the two were chirping each other when DeAngelo made a gesture indicating that Marchand had a long nose. Marchand responded by calling DeAngelo a "f--king racist." That was an attempt to dig up DeAngelo's past in order to get into his head. DeAngelo was suspended twice in the OHL for using racial slurs. At one point, he was suspended by his own team for directing the slur at a teammate during practice.
