(Video) Dmitry Orlov Boards Brayden Schenn; Orlov has hearing for hit

Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov will have a hearing with NHL's Department of Player Safety for this dangerous hit on Flyers forward Brayden Schenn. Orolov was given a five-minutes major for his efforts. The only thing that might save Orlov was that Schenn turned at the last minute. That's still a dangerous hit.

Brendan Shanahan sets a bad precedence for not suspending Tom Wilson

Brendan Shanahan explained why the NHL's Department of Player Safety will not suspend Tom Wilson for his hit to injure on Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn. I totally disagree with this, but oh well. None of us should be shocked by this decision, Shanny gets them wrong about half of the time.

Tweets about the Tom Wilson Hit.... Hum Interesting

Hate Shanny for doing his job. Wow! Brendan Shannahan has no choice but to suspend Tom Wilson, it's a brutal, dirty, illegal hit. If he doesn't suspend him, he loses all credibility in my opinion.

I would hardly doubt that Bob McKenzie would actually say something silly like that... Based on the hit, it was violent, and it was a predatory hit. Wilson takes about 6-8 strides and doesn't slow down, one bit. Absolutely blows Brayden Schenn up.

Capitals fans bringing up Bobby Clarke, they do have a point, I guess. Right?

Yeah! Because it was such a clean hit... Doh!

(Video) Washington's Tom Wilson pounds Brayden Schenn into the boards

This is a blatant charging, and it's also a checking from behind penalty. If the NHL's Department of Player Safety doesn't suspend Tom Wilson for this dangerous hit on Brayden Schenn, they're derelict in their duties. There's no sense to these types of hits.

Someone is going to get killed on the ice and it's not going to be from a fight, it's going to be from a dangerous hit like this. Personally, I am more offended by these types of hockey plays than to goons dropping the gloves in a staged fight.

Brayden Schenn is the first player suspended

Well that didn't take lone. Just three days into the lockout shortened 2013 season, Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn is the first player suspended by Brendan Shannahan. Actually, I have no problem with the suspension and this suspension should set the tone going forward.

Shanny has his work cut out for him part II

Arron Asham should be gone for the rest of the NHL playoffs for this cross check and then punch on Brayden Schenn. There was nothing wrong with Schenn's hit on Paul Martin, yet Asham attacks Schenn. If you don't like the way that Schenn hit your fellow teammate challenge him to a fight the old fashion way.

I think that the NHL will not look too kindly on this play by Asham; this will also give Brendan Shanahan a chance to make a statement because Asham is a goon and suspending him won't really affect the series that much. 

Penguins forward James Neal should have been thrown out of the game for this questionable blindside on Sean Couturier. The refs really blew this call and their inaction probably lead to this chain of events. That's right pulling of hair by Craig Adams, how very Vancouver Canucks like, Alex Burrows and Max Lapierre would probably approve of this act.

It will be interesting to see what comes out of the NHL's Department of Player Safety, this was a very emotional and hard fought game and I could see a few fines and probably a suspension or two for some of the offending players.  Loved the drama and the extra drama that came out of this game today.

Colin Campbell feels the Pen's Pain

The NHL front office is not happy that their linesmen blew a pretty obvious call last night. I suppose that means that the NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman is probably worried that the face of the NHL, Sidney Crosby's team will get eliminated in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Flyers can expect the games to be called closer from here on out.
TORONTO - Colin Campbell feels the pain of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The NHL's senior executive vice-president of hockey operations acknowledged Thursday that linesman Tony Sericolo erred in not whistling the play dead prior to Danny Briere's first goal in the opening game of the Penguins-Flyers series.

"There's no other way to explain it but a missed call," Campbell told The Canadian Press in an interview. "We're as upset as Pittsburgh almost. It's a mistake."

Briere scored Philadelphia's first goal on Wednesday night after being sent in on a breakaway by teammate Brayden Schenn. The long pass came immediately after a neutral zone turnover and replays showed that Briere was a couple feet offside.
First off lets be clear, the refs blew this call, it's pretty obvious even to the untrained eye. I am also going to agree with the Penguins head coach. ''That's not why we [Penguins] lost the game,'' coach Dan Bylsma said immediately afterward. The Penguins lost the game because they stopped playing after going up by three goals.

Flyers rough up the Pens

This is straight out of the rock em sock em hockey collection.

In case you missed it, the playoffs are just around the corner and I think that a potential series between the Flyers and the Penguins could very exciting, but also very explosive and nasty playoff series.

The two coaches were fined for the behavior during yesterday's game.

hit by Joe Vitale on Daniel Briere was a legal hit in my opinion, from my vantage point, it doesn't appear that Vitale targets Briere's head.

PITTSBURGH --Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette called out Pittsburgh counterpart Dan Bylsma for sending out his checking line shortly after Voracek's empty-net goal pushed the lead to 6-3.

Penguins forward Joe Vitale levelled Daniel Briere shortly after the ensuing faceoff, starting a chain of events that included Laviolette smashing a stick over the glass and all 10 players on the ice going at it.

"Those guys hadn't been out there in 12 minutes," Laviolette said. "It's a gutless move by their coach. It's gutless."

Bylsma didn't quite see it that way, claiming Vitale's shot on Briere was clean, unlike the crosscheck Pittsburgh star Sidney Crosby received from Brayden Schenn shortly after Steve Sullivan's second goal of the game pulled the Penguins within 5-3 late in the third period.

"It's clearly a cheap shot," Bylsma said. "It's clearly a guy targeting a player that was well after the whistle."

I an not a fan of either team, but Penguins coach  Dan Bylsma can put whoever he wants to out there on the ice, it's called sending a message, "see you next game." The Flyers and the Penguins play again on Saturday at Consol Energy Center.
