Just over 10 minutes into Andrew Shaw's three-game suspension officially began, Brendan Shanahan will more than likely have himself another hearing stemming from the Blackhawks-Coyotes series.

Midway through the first period of Chicago's third tilt with Phoenix, Coyotes' Raffi Torres drilled Marian Hossa with a hard, high hit, resulting in the 'Hawks star being carted off on a stretcher--however no call was made on the play.


The hit, which could have been an obvious match penalty, went undetected by both on-ice officials, leaving Blackhawks coach Joel Quennville irate as he spoke with analyst, Joe Micheletti, on the bench.

Quennville, who called the play "disgusting," was furious about the hit being missed by both officials, especially after the incident between Shaw and 'Yotes goaltender Mike Smith during Game 2, just a few short nights ago.

Torres is no stranger to the Blackhawks as far as controversial hits are concerned, either.

Just last year during the first round of the postseason, Torres' hit 'Hawks defenseman, Brent Seabrook, in similar fashion--he wasn't suspended nor fined on the play.

Although, he was given a four-game suspension for an eerily similar hit on the Oilers' Jordan Eberle just a few weeks prior to the Seabrook incident.

Will Torres earn a suspension this time around? The way punishments have been handed out thus far in the postseason, it's any one's guess.
