Flames agitator Matthew Tkachuk appeared to spear Maple Leafs tough guy Matt Martin from the Calgary bench during Toronto's 2-1 shootout win, but Martin says it didn't have much of an effect.

"I didn't feel it at the time," he told TSN's Mark Masters. "If he's going to do stuff like that he should make it count. That's child's play."

Martin added that he's fine, and was not injured.

Despite the apparently harmless result, Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock wasn't impressed by Tkachuk's spear, though he noted that the 19-year-old had played well otherwise.

"That's junior hockey stuff. He'll learn," Babcock said, according to Sportsnet's Shawn McKenzie.
