Boston Bruins captain Brad Marchand has always been known for pushing rules to their limits. During the series against the Toronto Maple Leafs, this has been on full display with multiple rules bent by Brad Marchand.

During his post-game press conference, Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe spoke about Brad Marchand. He commented on the multitude of times that Brad Marchand got away with things that should've been called penalties.
He gets calls. It's unbelievable actually, we have to get through that. There's not one other player that gets away with taking out Bertuzzi's legs. It's an art and he's elite at it.

Other than calls for penalties that are normally called during the course of a game fans pointed out another rule that Brad Marchand has broken. Fans went deep into the rule book to point out that Brad Marchand's jersey sleeves do not reach to the cuff of his glove which by rule is a violation.

This rule seems to be one that is not enforce strict at all as Brad Marchand is not the only player to have his gloves and jersey sleeves fail to meet. It does point out though the amount of things that Brad Marchand is able to get away with before questions begin to get asked.
The Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs face off later tonight where we will get to see if anything changes from the officials when it comes to Brad Marchand.
