There’s no licking in hockey…

Is there?

The Maple Leafs took a licking in Game 1 of their first round matchup against the Boston Bruins on Thursday, losing 5-1.

They also literally got licked – with tongue and all.

Bruins forward Brad Marchand was the culprit – shocking, I know – as he licked Toronto’s Leo Komarov in the first period.

Marchand was essentially trying to take their relationship to the next level, after giving Komarov a kiss back in December.

Komarov didn’t seem bothered by Marchand’s antics, and did a good job of ignoring him.

“That was weird. That was very weird to me,” said Nazem Kadri on the incident. “It’s certainly uncomfortable to watch.”

“He keeps trying to get close to me,” Marchand told reporters after the game when asked what makes him want to cuddle with Komarov so much. “I don’t know if he’s got a thing for me or what. He’s cute.”

Game 2 goes Saturday in Boston.
