Colorado tough guy Patrick Bordeleau was tossed from Thursday’s tilt with the Flyers after hitting Philly forward Brayden Schenn from behind:

Bordeleau was given five and a game, a decision that incensed Avs head coach Patrick Roy.

It’s worth noting that Bordeleau has no history with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety. Schenn didn’t appear to be injured — he proceeded to take a power play shift late in the first period — so it’s unclear if Bordeleau’s hit will be reviewed.
