Micheal Ferland was ejected in the second period for an illegal check to the head of Nic Dowd, but he may not be the Carolina Hurricanes’ player that’s in hot water after the game.
During the second intermission, NBC analysts Jeremy Roenick and Eddie Olczyk both went on the record saying Hamilton should be suspended by the Department of Player Safety for an elbow to the head of Evgeny Kuznetsov.
Update, Sunday, 2:00 PM: Chris Kuc of The Athletic says Hamilton will not face additional discipline.
On Dougie Hamilton elbow to Evgeny Kuznetsov, there wasn’t enough force to warrant supplemental discipline.
And Micheal Ferland did take a good angle and hit through Nic Dowd’s body without head contact.
Looked a lot worse in real time than on replay. #ALLCAPS#TakeWarning
