Calgary Flames forward Martin Pospisil was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for cross-checking Boston Bruins captain Brad Marchand to the face late in the first period of Tuesday's contest.

Numerous Flames converged on Marchand as he fought for a puck that Jacob Markstrom appeared to have covered. Marchand voiced his displeasure to officials following the play while bloodied.

Pospisil is in his first NHL season. The 2018 fourth-round pick entered the contest with 11 points in 33 contests.

Marchand's registered 47 points in 50 games so far this season, his 15th with the Bruins.

Boston was unable to convert on the five-minute power play. Calgary ultimately took the contest 4-1.
