ANIMATED: Boston's Brad Marchand Puts Degree From Juilliard To Good Use

The Washington Capitals scored late in the second period to force a 2-2 tie in their critical game 6 contest with the Boston Bruins, with Jason Chimera's first goal of the playoffs evening the tally. The sequence in which Chimera scores begins with Boston's Brad Marchand reacting to minimal contact by Chimera as if he were hit by a mack track. I'm not exaggerating, see for yourself:

Unless that very tiny portion of Chimera's arm is made of concrete, I'd say Mr. Marchand took some liberties with his reaction to that "collision".
