from Michael Russo of Russo’s Rants,
Pierre-Marc Bouchard is in the house, road the bike and is now on the ice. I’m no doc, but broken nose is a guarantee, and coach Mike Yeo pretty much confirmed that (“nose is smashed up”). Also has a cut lip. Still, depending on how he feels, he’s a game-time decision. Yeo said he wants to make sure Bouchard feels good because of his concussion career.
Hope to talk to Bouchard. No word on if Zach Bogosian will face discipline. NHL discipline exec Brendan Shanahan is traveling today, so I hope to hear soon if he’s seen the incident. Yeo felt Bogosian’s hands were high and needed to be in a lot more control, but “we’re not screaming bloody murder” that he needs to be suspended.
