I will also say, the Pitt response was weak.Whether that first contact was intentional or not (with Marchand either could be true), Pitt should have been moving him away with the whistle, and ESPECIALLY as Jarry chirped him. Guentzel just skates away and Letang doesn't even turn to Marchand as Jarry is yelling at him. After the punch, Letang does go after Marchand, but 2 Bruins respond even faster to not allow it. Referee moves Marchand away, but right to Crosby who .... does nothing at all. And as the refs move Marchand back across the center, there is no Penguin even talking to him, let alone between him and Jarry. Dumoulin gets a pass on the first part, as he was clearing Bruins on the other side of the net, but stood like a statue after the punch and as Marchand moved back towards Jarry. Rust even ignores Marchand after the second stick to mask taunt / poke. Inconceivable.Letang gets a B- for response, the rest of the team an F. The Penguins coach must have been livid with his team after the game.The teams play again on April 16, and again on the 21st. There needs to be a response then, may be too late.
