Sheldon Keefe goes after Brad Marchand's style of play

Published April 25, 2024 at 10:18

Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe spoke to the media after Game 3 in which he answered questions regarding Brad Marchand's style of play.

Keefe stated that Marchand gets away with too many penalties such as taking out Bertuzzi's legs.

"There's not another player in the series who gets away with taking out Bertuzzi's legs the way he does." - Keefe

The Leafs head coach went on to add how Marchand's way of being able to draw penalties is an art form.

Sheldon Keefe classifies Brad Marchand as being elite at drawing calls.

Even though Keefe believes that the Bruins have the upper hand when it comes to drawing penalties because of Marchand, the numbers tell a different story. So far in the series, the Leafs have been awarded five power plays in which they have scored on none of them while the Bruins have only gotten three power plays, going 2 for 3 on them.

The problem for the Leafs is not the lack of power plays but the fact that they cannot capitalize on them.
