Check this out, as Bruins' Brad Marchand takes down Canucks defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson in a dangerous collision, with no penalty, Ekman-Larsson was okay, but was this a slew foot?

Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand will have a hearing on Monday for slew-footing Vancouver Canucks defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson, the league's department of player safety announced.

The incident occurred at 1:01 of the first period in the Bruins' 3-2 win against the Canucks at TD Garden on Sunday. While chasing the puck near the Canucks' bench, Marchand attempted to force Ekman-Larsson away from the puck. But, in doing so, Marchand caught Ekman-Larsson's right leg with his own, sending the Canucks defenceman to the ice.

No penalty was called on the play. Ekman-Larsson remained in the game.
