07:29 AM ET 06.19 | No, it wasn't a feline incident that left Brad Marchand with a scratch in the middle of his forehead -- it was a different sort of scrap with Blackhawks agitator Andrew Shaw after the two tangled in Game 3. Marchand and Shaw dropped the gloves, and though the tussle was brief, they both received five-minute major penalties. "Yeah, I've got a nice scratch on my forehead right there, a little claw mark. Like a kitty cat," Marchand said [Tuesday]. ... Marchand wasn't even offended that Shaw tried to get in a few blows after the pair tumbled to the ice along with a linesman trying to break things up. "Not really. That stuff happens," he said. "I've done that before. The eye gouge I didn't like."

Andrew Shaw just doesn't have the same ring to his name as Matt Cooke does.

I'm calling shenanigans. How do you scratch something on Marchand's face without it being his nose?

I was also wondering what could possibly get passed Brad Luxury Yacht's enormous honker.

"Yeah, I've got a nice scratch on my forehead right there, a little claw mark. Like a kitty cat," Marchand said ..."

Shaw didn't take it Persianal

How about cross checking someone in the back of the head? We likey that?

Love where Marchand says the line should be drawn. Snooze.

C'mon Marchand, don't start whining now. You play a certain style of game that invites a little nastiness from opposing players. Don't mess up your image by crying about it.

And, it's not even a proper nose. It's polystyrene.
