The NHL may take a further look at a hit Ducks winger Bobby Ryan made on Kings forward Oscar Moller in the late stages of the Kings’ 4-0 win Thursday and determine whether Ryan be disciplined.
Ryan could face a suspension for taking a run at Moller and ramming him into the glass behind the Ducks’ net with 7.1 seconds left in the game. He was given a minor penalty for roughing, a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct.
After the game, Ryan said he expects the league will look at the hit but doesn’t believe he will be disciplined.
“I’d be very surprised,” Ryan said. ”I coasted for 10 feet before I hit him. I did definitely take some strides in that direction. But I came in and watched what I did right away. Everything was down, my hands. It was a clean hit. He had his head down. It’s part of the game.”
