Found March 11, 2013 on Diehardsport:
The hit that Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds delivered to Tyler Ennis wasn’t a dirty or malicious one, even though it was from behind.  The Buffalo Sabres forward was merely trying to turn and protect the puck, and he turned as Simmonds was hitting him.  It was a bang-bang play and Simmonds didn’t have time to react.  The referees were not going to call a penalty and so Mike Weber decided to go after Simmonds.  Unfortunately for Weber, Simmonds was waiting for someone to come after him and had his gloves off faster than Weber did.  After landing some big blows and getting Weber to drop to his knees, rather than continue throwing, Simmonds did the courteous thing and covered up Weber to end the tilt.

Goal Breakdown: Rangers sloppy, let two points slip away in Buffalo

The Sabres were without Tyler Ennis and Ryan Miller, are one of the worst teams in the league, and don’t play defense, so this game was supposed to be a cakewalk. It wasn’t, and while the Sabres were lucky to get out of the first ten minutes scoreless, they outplayed the Rangers in the second, forcing a lot of penalties. The Rangers played fairly well, but had some sloppy stretches...
