Hurricanes roast Marchand, Bruins on Twitter after blowout win
Earlier in the day, Trocheck responded to a question about whether his playing style is similar to Marchand's by asking, "Are you calling me a rat?"
Marchand fired back in an Instagram post by writing, "This is like comparing a Lambo to a Prius," with a side-by-side comparison of their statistics. He deleted the post before the game.
The Hurricanes had some fun with the lopsided victory following the afternoon's back-and-forth:
On Wednesday, Marchand replied to the first Hurricanes tweet, but Carolina burned him right back.
The Hurricanes will battle the Bruins in Boston again on Feb. 10.
