Comeau gets two games for boarding Smith


Another day, another NHL suspension for boarding. This time, it’s Columbus’ Blake Comeau, for two games, after he hit Detroit’s Brendan Smith from behind Tuesday evening at Nationwide Arena.

You know the explanation from the league by now — Comeau used “significant force” despite having time to avoid, “or at the very least minimize,” the hit into the boards.
