MAJOR: Flames Rookie Given Major Penalty Following Dirty Hit On Brad Marchand

MAJOR: Flames Rookie Given Major Penalty Following Dirty Hit On Brad Marchand

BY GRAHAM MONTGOMERY    FEBRUARY 6, 2024  (9:36 PM)
The Calgary Flames visited the Bruins in Boston tonight. After taking a 2-0 lead, chaos erupted.

Marchand Draws Major Penalty Following Violent Crosscheck To The Head



The Flames went up 2-0 early tonight as they took on one of the league's best teams in the Boston Bruins. However, they soon found themselves in trouble as rookie forward Martin Pospisil took a major penalty for crosschecking Bruins captain Brad Marchand in the head.

Martin Pospisil gets a five-minute major and a game for this play on Brad Marchand.


Thoughts?🤔



The Flames came out of it just fine however as they killed off the penalty without giving up a single goal. They currently lead Boston 4-1 late and it appears as though they will win this one.

That being said, the rookie forward could potentially be looking at supplementary discipline from the NHL for his actions tonight. The NHL's Department of Player Safety has become a joke with how inconsistent their rulings have been over the past few years so this could be a two-game suspension, or it could be nothing at all.
