    Bob Murray likely saved his job, if only temporarily, by firing Carlyle. We shall see what happens by the off season.

    How many games should the dirtiest player in the NHL get for stick swinging “accident”? I hope he gets 10 but he’ll get nothing because he missed his target.

    Just watched the first 3 goals. Absolutely zero chance on either of them. Brutal defending on the first two and a very fortuotious bounce on the Kane goal

    They have no healthy goalies under contract, so they called up DiPietro. Canucks D is playing bad, 3 goals on the first 5 shots, he has no help

    7 goals on 24 shots. Wow

    Perhaps the 4th goal (Kane's 2nd) wasn't great, but otherwise, he really had no chance in this game

    The punch to the back of his head should be punished too! The NHL wants to stop all contact with a players head, well, punches like that don't belong either, glove on, or not!

    I might have swung my stick too, in retaliation for being punched for no good reason! Malkin deserves to be punished for using his stick as a weapon, but, sucker punches to the back of the head should be punished as well.

    The difference is Malkin uses his stick a lot. Spears to the groin and back of the knee are his specialty, but that vicious stick could have ended the guy’s career if he had landed it.

    I agree, but, if you poke the bear, expect to get the claws!

    Sucker punches don't belong any more than stick infractions. JMHO.

    There are two issue, the punch to the back of the head perhaps should be penalized. However, the poke to the head does not permit a guy to swing his stick like that. I’m glad he’s getting a hearing and I hope he gets a suspension.

    Once Pastrnak's opponents repeated slash at his hands through the end of the season trying to aggravate this injury, the Bruins might re-think their injury disclosure policy.

    Never cheer for anyone getting hurt, but this just increased our chances of playing montreal in the first round substantially

    Tough break for Boston. Gotta feel bad for that city, they sure have a lot of bad luck
