Hagelin to Have Hearing With League Over Elbow

Game 2 between the Rangers and Ottawa Senators was chippy and nasty from start to finish. Matt Carkner was a lunatic on his one shift, jumping Brian Boyle which led to Brandon Dubinsky to take a third-man in penalty and an ejection, along with Carkner.

Later in the game, Carl Hagelin checked Daniel Alfredsson, and his shoulder appeared to hit Alfredsson’s head and was given a five minute major penalty. Alfredsson left the game with a possible concussion, and according to ESPN New York, Hagelin has a hearing with the league tomorrow.

Hagelin isn’t the only one with a hearing tomorrow, as Chris Phillips elbowed Ryan Callahan in the second period, which resulted in a two minute minor.

A hit like Hagelin’s gets a hearing, but Shea Weber smashing another players’ head into the glass like he was fighting in the WWF gets a $2,500 fine? This league is so backwards.

Have to figure if Chris Kreider will be the guy to take his spot if anything does happen.

Game 3 is Monday night in Ottawa. The series is tied 1-1.

    RANGERS looked like the superior team all night long. The NHL is the cause of all the viscious hits because they take a different approach when the playoffs start and let some many go that it eventually becomes a powder keg by game two or three. In an effort to not change the outcome of the game they fail to call the constant penalties that are happening; interference, charging, instigating, etc. The penalty assessed to Shea Webber is an embarrassment to the NHL , one that executives see and makes them determined not to place the NHL on a more national stage.The NHL is doomed!
