BOSTON (AP) – Injured Montreal Canadien Max Pacioretty has apologized for a comment he made on Twitter making fun of Bruins forward Brad Marchand’s nose.

During Saturday night’s double-overtime game between Boston and Montreal, Pacioretty posted, “this game is longer than marchands nose.” Later, Pacioretty posted an apology, saying, “I was trying to to be funny earlier, and it didn’t work. I apologize to marchand and won’t try to be funny that way in the future.”

Pacioretty has been out since sustaining a concussion and cracked vertebra on a hit by Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara.

Marchand scored a second-period goal in the game, which the Bruins won 2-1 to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.

    Must be the head injury.

    All I can say is the hit on Pacioretty was one of the cleanest I’ve ever seen. It was a perfect hit in every way. Sounds to me like he is a little bitter about it. The league thought it was clean, Chara thought it was clean and most importantly I thought it was the cleanest I have ever seen! Ha Ha.

    Bill is right it ust be the concussion that is causing this type of behavior!
