It sucks and its definitely tripping or a minor for kneeing since Morrow is responsible for leaving his leg out there, but it wasn't a Marchment style sweep the leg.

I hope Cullen isn't seriously injured. The fact that he came back to play at all was good.
Nothing in the rule book states intent in kneeing. It says "leads with the knee" and for the major it says about the severity. I thought the knee was the first contact and that Cullen was hurt. If you admit it might be a minor for kneeing than it just as easily should have been a major for kneeing. And the major automatically gets the game misconduct.

Edit: the play you are describing is a Match penalty.
