Pacioretty aplogizes for poke at Marchand’s nose

Injured Montreal Canadien Max Pacioretty has apologized for a
comment he made on Twitter making fun of Bruins forward Brad
Marchand’s nose.

During Saturday night’s double-overtime game between Boston and
Montreal, Pacioretty posted, ”this game is longer than marchands
nose.” Later, Pacioretty posted an apology, saying, ”I was trying
to to be funny earlier, and it didn’t work. I apologize to marchand
and won’t try to be funny that way in the future.”

Pacioretty has been out since sustaining a consussion and
cracked vertebra on a hit by Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara.

Marchand scored a second-period goal in the game, which the
Bruins won 2-1 to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.
