Hecht Out Two Weeks

from the AP via the Globe and Mail,
Sabres forward Jochen Hecht will be lost for two weeks with a sprained MCL in his left knee. Hecht was hurt by a controversial hit from Toronto's Darcy Tucker in the third period of Buffalo's 3-2 shootout win over the Maple Leafs on Monday night. After the game, Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff lashed out at Tucker, saying he wanted the player suspended and fined. The league informed the Sabres Tuesday no disciplinary action would be taken. "That really bothers me," Ruff said following practice Tuesday. "I disagree with it. They agreed that his elbow grazed the head, and to me, that's a shot to the head. When you're going after somebody's head, you've got intent to hurt. Don't tell me the knee is accidental after that. He knew exactly what he was doing, and should pay a price for it."
