Here are a couple of incidents from the Ottawa Senators and the New York Rangers game that is going to get a look at by the department of players safety. Senators defenseman Matt Carkner should be suspended for his attack on Rangers forward Brian Boyle, Rangers forward Brandon Dubinsky comes to Boyle's aid. Both Carkner and Boyle were kicked out of the game.
2:15 OTT Matt Carkner served by Nick Foligno : Fighting (maj) - 5 min
02:15 NYR Brandon Dubinsky : Roughing - 2 min
02:15 OTT Matt Carkner : Instigator - 2 min
02:15 OTT Matt Carkner : Game misconduct - 0 min
02:15 NYR Brandon Dubinsky : Game misconduct - 0 min  [box score]

Rangers forward Carl Hagelin was given a five minute major for this elbow on Senators forward Daniel Alfredsson. Alfredsson would lave the game and not return. It will be interesting to see if Brendan Shanahan gives either player suspension, I think the the Carkner attack on Boyle is worthy of a 1-3 game suspension.
