Joe Marsh did not attend practice today, but is still expected to be behind the bench tomorrow for the game with Princeton.
Marsh did speak about Sean Flanagan's suspension earlier in the week and had this to say:
"Sean is a quality guy. He has never played that way. He doesn’t do things underhanded. He’s a very classy player and always has been.
"It wasn't a smart play; it was something he would certainly want to take back. I don’t think there was any malice or forethought in this. It didn't exercise good judgement. "We certainly standby (the ECAC's) assessment. We’re not going to fight it. It’s important that all players — ours and everyone else's — understand even accidental things can lead to serious injury.
"Flanagan is a really calssy player and a clean player. He’s never done anything. It’s not his M.O. We accept responsibility for that and we move on. I think it’s important that in those situations, coaches shouldn't be arguing about it. These (rules) are there to protect everybody."
Bob Prier echoed Marsh's sentiments as part of this week's podcast:
