Brad Marchand found himself in the spotlight after a knee-on-knee collision with Flyers defenseman Erik Johnson went uncalled by the officials.

Brad Marchand takes a dangerous knee on knee hit from Erik Johnson, chews out the refs for not calling anything, and gets 2 minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct.
