Dallas forward Antoine Roussel has no disciplinary hearing scheduled for charging Carolina goalie Anton Khudobin on Thursday night, an NHL spokesman confirmed.
The incident occurred early in the third period of the Stars’ 4-1 win. Here’s the video:
Roussel was given a five-minute charging major and game misconduct for the hit, which shook up Khudobin temporarily but didn’t force him from the game. The Russian goalie finished with 30 saves on 33 shots.
Despite tough fight, Stars hand Wild their sixth straight loss
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
