In what can only be described as a storybook ending, the past few days leading up to the Sedins’ final NHL game has been nothing but magical.

Between a Sedin mural that was packed with heartfelt messages, Daniel’s overtime goal, and a Viking clap started by Henrik, there was no end of heartwarming moments.

The twins were also showered with kind words by their colleagues from the hockey world, including a surprising message from Brad Marchand.

Yes, that Brad Marchand.

Given the bitter rivalry between the Canucks and Bruins since 2011, the kind words came as a shock to most. Not everyone was willing to welcome his gesture.

Needless to say, there were a lot of doubting (and angry) fans. While Marchand has reputation for being hockey’s most famous instigator, the kind words are a classy move, if nothing else.

Although it looks like old habits, die hard.
