from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
Chris Neil woke up with a headache Wednesday….
While Neil was on the ice for the club’s 30-minute practice Wednesday at the Saddledome, he wasn’t happy the refereees only gave Whitney a two-minute minor.
Not only did Whitney drill Neil in the head, he also caught him in the shoulder.
“That was a headshot, for sure,” said Neil. “You want to get that kind of stuff out of the game. I didn’t even see him coming. I know he’s behind me, but my back is to him. I wasn’t even facing him. That’s the kind of player he is, he’s kind of a backstabber.
“I didn’t really know what happened off the get-go. I’ve seen that play before and guys have gotten a (five-minute major) and kicked out of the game. I know the referees saw the first one (to the shoulder), but they didn’t see the second, obviously.”
