NHL Looking At Plekanec High Stick

via Matt Kalman of ESPNBoston,

Krejci tried to challenge Plekanec after the whistle, but he was rebuffed. In addition to Plekanec’s high-sticking penalty, the two players received unsportsmanlike conduct minors. Krejci says he has no idea what precipitated Plekanec’s hit because there were no words exchanged.

“I don’t care about suspended, but he should stick up for [himself],” Krejci said before Saturday night’s game with Toronto at TD Garden. “But he didn’t do it. He did what he did and he just left. He didn’t respond or anything. So I think it’s a gutless move. And we’ll play them again this year, so we’ll see what happens.”

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli confirmed to ESPNBoston.com that he has been in contact with the NHL offices about the hit and the league is reviewing it.
