Eddie Olsucks and Keith Jones got all jammed up about this hit. So was the panel of assholes from TSN:
Shut up Bob Mckenzie. Is Bob Mckenzie a league official? Didn't know he makes personal decisions now.
If this was just a run of the mill ROOT sports broadcast, does this even get attention?
We'll expect Scott Stevens to be removed from the hall of fame tomorrow if these hits aren't allowed anymore
He left his feet. So does Ovechkin on every hit. Big deal. It was minimal.
Hit to the head. Yea, the guys head was right at Engo's chest. This wasn't a head shot. The guy had his head down.
Is Engo supposed to let the player walk past him for a scoring chance?
THIS HEADSHOT WASN'T REVIEWED BY SHANNY
REPEAT THIS WAS NOT REVIEWED
Go to hell.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Pens are going to be down another defensemen for the next 3 games. Deryk Engelland was suspended today by the NHL in a move that no one should be surprised about.

Just because we're a fan blog, doesn't mean we can't have differing opinions like human beings...
It's understandable why this post was made. Derek and/or Adam (no idea who wrote it) is a Penguins fan and, especially with the Pens defense suffering from every injury right now, it would hurt the Penguins if Engelland missed any time. It's also tough watching...

No. 1 Goat: Deryk Engelland, Pittsburgh Penguins
Engelland activated a beacon for the league's department of player safety after hitting Chicago's Marcus Kruger into the boards during the first period of play. The hit ended Kruger's night and caused an immediate retaliation from Blackhawks forward John Scott. While Scott was hit with a game misconduct, a fighting major...
This is why I like the NHL; a player dishes out what I would classify as a dirty bush league check on an opposing player. His teammate who happens to be trailing the play takes issue with the questionable hit and challenges the offending player to a fight.
In this case Blackhawks heavy weight John Scott, reacted appropriately to the questionable hit, came to his teammates...

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Deryk Engelland has been suspended three games for his unpenalized hit on Chicago's Marcus Kruger on Tuesday night.
Brendan Shanahan explains the suspension.
NHL players are really making Brendan Shanahan's Christmas week much busier than it should be.
In the middle of the first period of tonight's Chicago Blackhawks/Pittsburgh Penguins game, Deryk Engelland laid a big on Markus Kruger along the boards making contact with the head in the process and causing the "supplemental discipline" phone in the NHL offices to start...
