In case you missed it last night, Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand made an absolute fool of him self in the shootout against the Philadelphia Flyers with a display that can only be described as an all-time shootout fail.
With the game on the line, in a “score or go-home” scenario, Marchand came flying through the neutral zone, picked up the puck and… WHOOOOOOOOPS!
