Last night, Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown delivered a controversial hit on Dallas Stars winger Antoine Roussel. One day later on Tuesday, he left Minnesota Wild advocates fuming after this elbow on Jason Pominville:
There’s little question that the elbow will draw debate – which didn’t draw a penalty – but it’s interesting to note that the Kings already clinched a playoff spot.
Will the league be more willing to hand out a suspension (if it deems one reasonable, of course) to a player whose team isn’t playing games that are quite as important? We’ll see.
