Carolina Hurricanes forward Vincent Trocheck got the attention of Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand before Tuesday night's game at TD Garden.
For context, Trocheck was asked by a reporter Tuesday morning if his style of play is similar Marchand's, and this was his response:
Marchand responded to Trocheck's comments with a hilarious Instagram post in which he compared their career stats, including a leaderboard of the NHL's top scorers over the last few years.
The funniest part, though, was Marchand's one-line caption to the post, which read, "This is like comparing a Lambo to a Prius."
Marchand deleted the post not too long after uploading it. Evan Marinofsky of CLNS Media captured it via screenshots in the tweet below:
Tuesday's matchup was already going to be a good one considering the Bruins' recent success (five-game win streak) and the Hurricanes having the second-best points percentage (.743) in the league.
But now the anticipation is even higher after this back-and-forth between Marchand and Trocheck, who have mixed it up on the ice a few times.
