Video: Jared Cowen elbows Pavel Datsyuk, escapes NHL discipline

Ottawa's Jared Cowen delivered a nasty elbow to the head of Detroit's Pavel Datsyuk. The incident looked pretty bad live, but replays proved Cowen went out of his way to stick Datsyuk in the head with his elbow long after the puck left the area.  Surely Cowen would receive some sort of punishment from the NHL after this hit, right? Of course not. This is the NHL and...

RIGHT IN THE JAW!" Datsyuk was being held out of today'...

Travis Yost: G24: Senators @ Hurricanes

Breaking normal pre-game routine here, because apparently there's a lot of debate about whether or not Jared Cowen should be suspended for his hit on Pavel Datsyuk Saturday night. At first blush, Cowen's third-period check to the head of Datsyuk looked like a bit of a dive -- something I never, in a million years, would have expected from the Russian star. Granted, it...
