Brad Marchand acknowledged that his licking incidents went too far.
Marchand took a lot of heat recently for licking Ryan Callahan's face and that came after a similar incident involving Leo Komarov in the first round. The NHL spoke to Marchand in response to that to let him know that his actions were inappropriate and he's now acknowledged that he's "got to cut that [expletive] out." May 9 - 2:52 PM

Brad Marchand played through a groin injury for the last six or seven games of the postseason.

Marchand was still a big producer in the second round with a goal and eight points in five games against Tampa Bay. Of course, it wasn't enough for the Bruins to defeat the Lightning, so Marchand will now focus on his recovery. He won't need surgery this summer.

The NHL has apparently warned the Winnipeg Jets and Nashville Predators about the consequences of licking an opponent ahead of Saturday's matchup.

Rule 75.4 (iii): "Any player who persists in any course of conduct designed to incite an opponent into incurring a penalty." Apparently the NHL has decided that anyone caught licking an opponent will be forced to serve a 10-minute misconduct penalty. So far Brad Marchand has gotten away with licking two opponents but the NHL appears to have had enough of his antics and the embarrassment they have caused.

It appears the NHL is ready to intervene in the licking scandal surrounding Brad Marchand.

For those who are unaware, Marchand thought it was a good idea to lick Tampa's Ryan Callahan in the face during Friday's Game 4 loss to the Lightning. This marks the second time this postseason that the Bruins forward has licked an opponent after he did it to Toronto's Leo Komarov in the first round. If the NHL would have gotten involved after the first incident, all of this nonsense could have been avoided but here we are again. It's possible that another incident involving Marchand could result in a fine or suspension. This has become an extremely embarrassing incident for the league.

Brad Marchand registered a pair of assists in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Marchand helped set up goals by David Pastrnak (power play) and Patrice Bergeron (shorthanded). He also grabbed the hockey world's undivided attention when he licked Tampa Bay forward Ryan Callahan. It's the second time this postseason that he has licked an opponent after he put his tongue on Leafs forward Leo Komarov's face in the first round. He did not pick up a penalty on the play, but it will be interesting to see whether or not the NHL decides to hit him with supplemental discipline. The 29-year-old has four goals and 17 points in 11 games this postseason. The Bruins will be facing elimination in Tampa Bay on Sunday afternoon.
