Jabs, Pushing and Suspensions

via the Calgary Flames,

Avalanche tough guy Scott Parker went out in the second period to do his thing—stir it up. He got it when he cross-checked Dion Phaneuf in the throat and then jabbed his stick at Phaneuf while he was on the ice.

In comes Eric Godard for the anticipated heavyweight bout, in which Parker gets the upper hand. Problem for Parker is he took a major for the crosscheck so it didn’t help his team in the power play department.

Word out of Denver was that Parker could face further discipline under the intent to injure rule for his crosscheck on Phaneuf.

The Flames also received the news that Godard would be suspended for two games because he received his third instigator penalty of the season.

Coincidentally, all three players were involved in a pushing and shoving session during the warm-up.
