Marchand takes to the streets as Thor

A year ago, Brad Marchand -- dressed as the Nutcracker -- joined the far-more-ridiculous Zdeno Chara as part of a Bruins contingent that visited the kids at Children's Hospital near Halloween. But this year, with Chara playing overseas and the NHL locked out, Marchand took the ridiculous upon himself:

That's Marchand as Thor, the comic book superhero whose Wikipedia page describes him as a "superb hand-to-hand combatant" -- which is a trait that Daniel Sedin, for example, can attest is as true of Marchand as his alter-ego. Based on the photos, though, he was in more of a peacekeeping mood as he wore his costume in South Boston.

This is where we might suggest that it's time the NHL and its players struck a deal because Marchand clearly has far too much free time on his hands these days. But Paul Pierce and a few of the Patriots (including Robs Gronkowski and Ninkovich) did their part to prove that at Halloween the in-season athletes have time to play dress up and act like kids, too.
