The already heated playoff series between the Boston Bruins and Florida Panthers has taken an ugly turn after Bruins captain Brad Marchand issued a shocking statement regarding the role of intentionally injuring opponents during the postseason.

Marchand, who is currently sidelined with a potential concussion after a controversial collision with Panthers forward Sam Bennett earlier in the series, did not mince words when addressing the incident.
"People don't wanna say it, but part of playoffs is trying to hurt every player on the other team, and the more guys you take out, the more advantage your team has," Marchand said in an interview, sending shockwaves through the hockey world.

While Marchand's comments shed light on the brutal, cutthroat nature of playoff hockey, they have been widely condemned by players, coaches, and fans alike for promoting a dangerous and unsportsmanlike mindset.
The NHL has long grappled with the issue of head injuries and player safety, making Marchand's remarks particularly tone-deaf and concerning. His suggestion that intentionally injuring opponents is a legitimate strategy in the playoffs has drawn widespread criticism. Is there any truth to what Marchand said?
