Marchand suspended 3 games for slew-footing Ekman-Larsson
Marchand took Ekman-Larsson down early in a 3-2 Bruins victory on Sunday night.
The skilled Bruins agitator wasn't penalized for the incident, and Ekman-Larsson stayed in the game.
Marchand is no stranger to the Department of Player Safety. This is now the seventh time he's been suspended in his 13-year career and the second for slew-footing. He's also been fined five times, two of which were for slew-footing.
The 33-year-old also has a history of animosity with the Canucks. He was suspended five games for clipping Vancouver blue-liner Sami Salo in 2012, and he infamously sent Canucks star Daniel Sedin flying during Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final in 2011.
