    Pens fan. No hit, but intention on the play should see Geno sit for at least 2 or 3.

    They got it. Major. Raffl sold it as if he got hit, but intention was insanely dirty.

    From the clips I've seen, I honestly can't tell how badly Malkin got Raffl. It deserves a suspension because Malkin is a ****ing idiot, but I'm not sure how much of Raffl he got.

    It's comparable to this 1 game suspension that Keith got:

    Kinda fitting that Malkin's first suspension will be a dumb and unnecessary stick infraction.

    Oh man you're gonna get blasted for putting the word "phantom" in the title.

    Whether he made contact or not that's the right call. You can't swing like that

    He got a match penalty. Will probably only be 1 game due to the fact that it's Malkin and he didn't make much contact.

    Could have been really really bad and deserves to be punished. I can't stand players who use their sticks to attempt to injure other plays.

    GG Geno robbing your goalie of a very probable shutout.

    Contact - 2 games.

    No contact - 1 game, fine to Raffl for embellishment.

    Geno deserves to sit. He is insanely lucky he did not connect hard. Could have been a Perezoghin situation.

    Likely zero games. Shrek is the dirtiest player in the league yet gets away with it time after time.

    The 5 minute game misconducts was enough. Never hit Raffl. Raffl sure did put on an acting job though. Raffl is such a punk. Punching to the head and cheap shots all night. Refs created that mess.

    Looks like it grazes his shoulder but what the heck is Makin thinking there?

    Not sure how the league will punish this.

    It was stupid for him to swing like that. Could have cost them. The PK came up big.

    Should be multiple games. He took a full ****ing swing at his head. Raffl is so damn lucky Malkin missed but the league should not just let that kind of behavior slide because there was no injury.

    Was still dumb and dangerous to swing your stick like that.

    I agree. Malkin should probably get a game. Damn hot head. You don’t retaliate to another player being a b*tch like that. You fight him or leave it go.

    That was really dumb and I assume he will get suspended a game.

    Nope, not a thing. Mitchell missed 4 months, wasn't sure if he'd ever play again.

    I definitely think it'll be more than 1 game.

    Good on Malkin. Raffl deserved it. Can't just let someone take a swing at your head.
