No Hearing for Marchand's Latest Dangerous Trip

As predicted, Brad Marchand's latest dangerous trip will go the way of many falling trees in the forest. The Bruins' forward tripped Anton Stralman last night in Tampa Bay (see video above), and was not called for a penalty on the play.

We reported on this last night, saying that it looked relatively innocent and was probably not going to result in discipline.

On Wednesday, SportsNet's Elliotte Friedman reported that discipline was unlikely.

Marchand was fined $10k last week for what the NHL deemed to be a "dangerous trip" on Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall. Code word: Slewfoot.

In other news, former NHLer Ray Ferraro had his own take on Marchand's trip on Stralman.

Naturally Ferraro is currently taking heat from Bruins' fans on Twitter--and holding his own.
