BREAKING: SHOCKING decisions from the NHL after one of the most vicious hits of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Early report from Craig Custance, senior writer for ESPN, ESPN NHL Insider. No hearing is scheduled for Matt Niskanen for his hit on Sidney Crosby.
For those who were living on another planet last night, Matt Niskanen delivered a cross check directly to Sidney Crosby’s head during game no. 3 between the Washington Capitals and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Crosby never came back in the game as everyone knows his history with concussion. Many questions stay unanswered despite the fact that Matt Niskanen faced the music and met the media following the Washington Capitals OT 3-2 win.
However, Tim Benz, Host of DKSportsRadio located in Pittsburgh, reported an important information last night regarding Sidney Crosby.
“Crosby just walked by me in the arena. Full suit. Winked at a worker and appeared to say ‘I’ m OK.” Walking briskly. No sign of a limp.”
