A post is making its way around social media showing how Brad Marchand is breaking a certain NHL rule during games in the Toronto Maple Leafs series, and it's unclear whether someone from the League will enforce the rule.

Brad Marchand has earned his reputation for skirting the rules on the ice, and that often takes the form of embellishing and getting under players skins in order to draw penalties. He is so good at this, that Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe and some players have commented on his excellent ability to earn calls.
Sheldon Keefe speaks on Brad Marchand's antics in Game 3.

Now, fans are pointing out that Marchand is breaking the rules in a totally different way as they state his jersey sleeves do not go down to his gloves, which is a requirement in the NHL rulebook.

Obviously, Bruins fans are quick to note that this evidence doesn't really amount to much, since Marchand is raising his hands in the photo which would result in the sleeves pulling up. However, there have been other points during the series in which Marchand's wrists have been exposed, and Max Domi has noticed as well.
Ultimately, the NHL isn't likely to do much here. Even if they were to determine that Marchand's jersey was against the rules, they would likely send him a warning before any legitimate punishment.
The Leafs will look to stay alive tomorrow night as game 5 is set to go down in Boston with the series tilted 3-1 in their favour.
