Anaheim Ducks defenseman Clayton Stoner was given a minor penalty for cross checking after a hit from behind on Chicago Blackhawks forward Marcus Kruger.

The incident occurred early in the first period.

The cross check sent Kruger dangerously head-first into the end boards. Kruger remained in the game. After the play was stopped, Stoner got his hands up in the face of Chicago’s Andrew Shaw, who went to confront the Ducks’ blue liner, but was called for only the one initial infraction.
