Brad Marchand is an elite pest.
The Boston Bruins forward is that guy you hate to compete against, but probably love to play alongside.
In Thursday night’s Game 1 of a first-round matchup against the Toronto Maple Leafs, Marchand added to his reputation.
Just ask Leafs counterpart Leo Komarov:

Asked about the … um … encounter with Komarov following the game, Marchand said this: “He keeps trying to get close to me. I don’t know if he has a thing for me or what. He’s cute.”
To add insult, Marchand added a goal and assist in the Bruins’ 5-1 drubbing over the Leafs.
It’s not the first time that the 29-year-old Marchand has put the moves on Komarov. This happened during a contest in November.
Can’t wait to see where this relationship goes over the course of the next week.
