Vancouver Canucks: Zach Kassian no-class....

I would say that Zach Kassian is taunting an opponent. A bush league move in my opinion. Here's what Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy has to say on the matter. Gagner faced the Canucks for the first time this season on Friday night. At one point, the teams were involved in a scrum that included his former oral surgeon Kassian.Because hockey is a nasty, twisted psychological war in which...

Zenon Konopka double-minor for high sticking Jason Demers - GIF

This is a bad call, actually it's pathetic, as Wild tough guy Zenon Konopka was given a double minor for high sticking. You can see by the GIF that Konokpa never touched Jason Demers. The Sharks scored on the power play. You can bet that the Wild GM might be giving the NHL front office a call tomorrow. s/t CJZERO @blldgshockey11 Nope, not at all— CJ Fogler (@cjzero) December 13, 2013

(Video) Milan Lucic vs. Luke Gazdic

Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic (11g-13a-24pts) is a skilled fighter that can also score goals and put up points. He didn't really need to fight fourth line player like Luke Gazdic (1g-1a-2pts) who's put up very minor numbers in 25 games with the Edmonton Oilers.

(Video) Canadiens Alexei Emelin's elbows the Flyers Steve Downie.

Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin's connect with the elbows on Philadelphia Flyers forward Steve Downie. Emelin was give a five-minute major penalty for elbowing and a game misconduct. You have to wonder if there will be a call from the NHL's Department of Player Safety? Personally, I don't think it's worthy of a suspension. But the video is not very good either.EDIT:...

Buffalo Sabres no goal.

This is one of the plays that kind of made a stir tonight on the internet.... I think it's a blown call, but I guess if you read the explanation, it makes sense.At 15:30of the second period in the Senators/Sabres game, the Situation Room initiated a video review because the puck entered the Ottawa net. The referee informed the Situation Room that he had a delayed hi-sticking penalty...

Dion Phaneuf suspended 2 games for hit on Kevan Millar

Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf has been suspended for two-games by the NHL for his on Kevan Millar. Personally, I think that is the right decision, and I can live with this suspension. In my opinion, a two-game suspension seems like an appropriate length for that hit. The NHL can't go around suspending every player that boards another player five-games. While it was...
