I know he's full of sh*t out there. - Bertuzzi on Marchand

Marchand is often regarded as one of the best players in the league at getting under their opponents skin, but it appears as though his former teammate sees through the act.

Former teammates collide

Both of these teams are off to great starts this year, with Boston going 8-0-1 to this point while Toronto sit at 5-3-1, and with a potential playoff matchup between the two later in the season, comments like this will fire up the rivalry.

It's clear though that while Bertuzzi may believe what he said about Marchand, the Bruins new captain is off to a great start in 2023 as he sits at a point per game through their first nine, so this is a battle within the battle to keep an eye on during their Thursday matchup.
