Will Bourque’s elbow on Conacher get him suspended?

Alright, folks, you know what to do. Take a look at this Rene Bourque elbow on Ottawa’s Cory Conacher and play NHL disciplinarian in the comments section.

A couple of things worth noting:

—- Boston’s Andrew Ference was given a one-game suspension for “recklessly targeting” Mikhail Grabovski’s head in the Bruins-Leafs series. Was this elbow as “principal” in its point of contact?

—- Bourque has a history, as he was given fives games for elbowing Washington’s Nicklas Backstrom last January.
