Dion Phaneuf’s hit from behind on Bruins rookie defenseman Kevan Miller didn’t land him in the penalty box, but it will cost him a pair of game checks.
The NHL announced Tuesday that the Maple Leafs captain has been suspended two games for boarding Miller late the third period of Boston’s 5-2 win Sunday night. The suspension is Phaneuf’s first in his nine-year NHL career.
Miller, who scored his first NHL goal earlier in the contest, did not return to the game after the hit, but his injury was not considered serious.
Phaneuf will be eligible to return to the ice when the Leafs host Chicago on Saturday.
See the hit that led to the suspension in the video below.

Boston Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller is absolutely destroyed by Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf. There's no sense to this hit, this is a major penalty, in my opinion.
