Marchand gives young Capitals fan autographed stick in heartwarming gesture originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Before puck drop, a young fan was hit with a puck that deflected into the seats during warmups.
Bruins forward Brad Marchand noticed what happened, signed a stick and had a team employee bring it to the young Capitals fan to try and cheer her up.
That’s a nice gesture from Marchand.
This is the first playoff series between the Bruins and Capitals since 2012 when Washington eliminated Boston in Game 7 of Round 1.
