The Ducks were none too happy with a hit by Gaustad in the final 15 seconds that left center Ryan Getzlaf with a broken nose and a nasty facial cut.
“That’s one that’s going to be looked at very closely because Gaustad left his feet and hit him with a shoulder, blindsided him,” Carlyle said. “It may look like he (Gaustad) got hurt on it. Look at the replay. He’s in the air after he hits him (Getzlaf). So it was one of those that we’re going to have to take a look at.”
While Gaustad received no penalty, the NHL could choose to impose supplementary discipline.
Getzlaf, still bleeding and clutching a towel to his face long after the game ended, said he “was fine.”
