Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand became the second player in as many days to be suspended for elbowing an opponent in the head. 

Marchand received a two-game ban for his elbow deleivered to the back of the head of Columbus Blue Jackets winger R.J. Umberger on Tuesday. The suspension announced Thursday follows an identical suspension to San Jose Sharks forward Dany Heatley

“I understand where the league is coming from,” Marchand told CSNNE.com's Joe Haggerty. “They’re obviously cracking down on head hits right now. I’m disappointed to miss a couple of games and it’s always frustrating to have to watch your team play.

“But I understand why it happened. The biggest thing is to regroup now and get ready to play when I’m called back to action.”

No penalty was called on the collision that occurred midway through the second period. Umberger remained in the game.

Marchand will forfeit $6,330.64 in salary.

This is an example of an actual bad hit. Definitely deserved a two gamer, and stuff like this is what needs to be cracked down on. This and Heatleys hit is the type of stuff they have to get rid of....not rubbing someone out of the play....
