Video: John Tavares slew-footing Brad Marchand

96 Comments

In mid-January, Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand received a two-game suspension for slew-footing. Will New York Islanders star John Tavares get some league attention for doing the same on Marchand?

Judge for yourself in the video below from Saturday’s eventual 2-1 win for Boston:

A few things to consider:

  • There was no penalty on the play.
  • Tavares hasn’t been suspended before.
  • No word on if this is under review (although it’s also worth noting that two key Player Safety Twitter accounts have been silent since Jan. 28, anyway).

Check out this video explanation for Marchand’s two-game suspension for comparison’s sake:
