Since the Flyers season is, ya know, over, Schenn will serve his suspension at the start of the 2016-17 regular season.
In the DOPS video, the announcer emphasizes Schenn’s targeting of Oshie’s head. The contact with Oshie’s head is characterized as “significant” and “substantial.” Schenn’s movement is called a “launch.”
Schenn and Oshie had fought at the start of Game Five, apparent justice for Schenn’s axe-chop on Evgeny Kuznetsov’s legs.
This is the second suspension of the Caps-Flyers series. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare was suspended one game for boarding Dmitry Orlov.
The Capitals won the series in six games.
