Chicago Not Happy With Hits

from the Chicago Daily Herald,
Michal Handzus is the second top-line player the Blackhawks have lost with a knee injury because of what general manager Dale Tallon believes was a questionable hit. Tuomo Ruutu suffered a sprained knee in the preseason and hasn’t played since because of a clip by Columbus defenseman Rostislav Klesla, who got only a two-game suspension from the league. Tallon said the NHL was looking at the hip check St. Louis defenseman Denis Wideman put on Handzus in Saturday’s game, but the GM wasn’t going to hold his breath waiting for the proper punishment to come from Commissioner Gary Bettman’s office.
