It could be that Shanny is too busy looking at himself naked in the mirror, but it appears there is no hearing scheduled for Brooks Orpik via The New York Rangers blog.
Update, 12:47 p.m.:
Zipay reports that Ryan McDonagh says that Stepan was sore this morning, but doesn't think it's anything serious.
...Dr. McD to the rescue.
Zipay also reports that no hearing has been scheduled for Brooks Orpik, and appears there won't be.
...there's Bettman's NHL for you. Glad the league is trying to cut down on dangerous plays.
BEST OF MAXIM
I'm usually a big fan of Brooks Orpik as he is the exact type of defenseman the Rangers have been missing since Jeff Beukeboom, but after his knee-on-knee hit on Derek Stepan last night, I've lost a lot of respect for the guy...
Hey Torts, how'd you feel about the hit? (watch here)..."It's a cheap dirty hit. I wonder what would have happened if we...
Evgeni Malkin scored his 50th goal of the season and added an assist to lock up his second NHL scoring title and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 on Saturday.
Malkin finished the regular season with 109 points and became the ninth player in Penguins history to reach the 50-goal mark when his wrist shot with 12 seconds left in the second period beat Philadelphia...
Well, anyone who watched the game last night saw that in the third period, with the Penguins well on their way to a victory, Derek Stepan carried the puck through the neutral zone, and was hit by Brooks Orpik. The hit was a knee-on-knee hit, and Stepan was down on the ice for a while before skating to the bench. Video is below:
When watching the video, different angles show different...
War has been declared.
It was expected that the Pittsburgh Penguins would retaliate the first chance they got after Rangers head coach John Tortorella lashed out against them following last night's game, calling them an "arrogant" organization and referencing Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin as "whining stars".
But the actual retaliation, which came...
Head coach John Tortorella blasted the Penguins following a game between the teams, calling them "one of the most arrogant organizations in the league."
The final score and pretty much everything in the game has and is ovcershadowed by the hit by Brooks Orpik on Derek Stepan. Give Pittsburgh credit for winning and clinching second place while the Rangers came out flat and in showed in their performance. That prior sentence is pretty much all that has to be said about the game, though I will touch on a few things, as there were very...
In his post practice press conference today, Sidney Crosby said this about John Tortorella calling him a whiner..."I don't know what he's talking about. I mean, if you want you can put a camera on us all game, put a camera on (Ryan Callahan) all game. You'll see who's over there more. He should worry about his own players."...Is he effin kidding me? Absolutely...

What a season for Evgeni Malkin. Last year at this time he was starting the long road to recovery from a torn ACL. This year, he capped an incredible year with his 50th goal late in the second period against the Flyers:
Flying sticks. Pointed fingers. Postgame putdowns. And that was just the coaches.
What can the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers possibly do in Saturday's regular-season finale to top their last meeting, a 6-4 Flyers win at Consol Energy Center this week that served as a preview of what will be a contentious first-round playoff series?
The smart answer might be nothing...
