Found April 04, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
from Michael Russo of Russo's Rants, Coach Mike Yeo, after a very abbreviated 20-second press scrum, indicated that Dany Heatley will out for awhile with what looked on replay to be a left wrist injury after an altercation he had with San Jose Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic after the game. Vlasic, Heatley’s former teammate who had an ongoing battle with the veteran much of the third period, got into it with Heatley in front of the Sharks’ net in the final seconds after Vlasic cross-checked Heatley. Vlasic slashed Heatley across the top of the back. Heatley got up and tried to connect with his stick and missed. Vlasic then two-handed Heatley across the forearm and jumped him.

San Jose’s Marc-Edouard Vlasic sticks the Wild’s Dany Heatley

First off, Jose Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic needs to be suspended for a very long time by the Department of Player Safety for his vicious attack on Wild forward Dany Heatley.

(Video) End of the Wild and Sharks game

Since when is it now permissible to cross-check your opponent multiple times in the NHL? The refs in this game should be punished the NHL’s head of officials for their performance at the end of this game.
