Brad Marchand drew a tripping call on Detroit defenseman Brendan Smith after skating into a leg-on-leg hit to his left leg.

When falling to the ground, Marchand clutched his right leg, forcing Michael Felger to believe the winger was faking.

That action rubbed Felger the wrong way.

"Brad, if you're going to be a weasel," said Felger, "If you're going to be a cheater, if you're going to act like a Montreal Canadien. You got to get your knees straight."

He then went on to explain why he disliked the play so much.

"If the Bruins advance here, Montreal is waiting on the other side." said Felger, "When we get into that series, I want to have the moral high-ground. I want to call them the team that dives, and fakes it and plays that greasy game.

"If the Bruins are going to do it as much as the Canadiens, forget that. We're just as bad as they are" said Felger, "What Lucic did the other night, what Marchand did tonight, I'm not on board with that. Pure garbage."
