There’s a better view of the situation, folded into a brief highlight package for the whole game. You can see it all develop from the 2:32 mark.


The American Hockey League had something to say on the matter, suspending all three players for one game apiece on Monday afternoon. It was but a small part of a veritable field day for the league’s disciplinarians.
