No Suspension Expected for Bruins’ Horton

From Damian Cristodero at Lightning Strikes:

An incident after the Tampa Bay Lightning’s 5-4 victory in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference final likely will not cause Bruins forward Nathan Horton nor the Lightning to be disciplined, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly wrote in an e-mail to the St. Petersburg Times.

“Based on what I know now, I don’t expect any action of any kind,” Daly wrote Thursday.

This is probably the third or fourth incident that produced a “no suspension for Horton” headline. This guy has no composure.

Some of those calls for suspensions were just whining on the part of the opposition, though. In particular, his ‘suckerpunch’ of Dominic Moore came after Moore butt-ended him in the jaw and cross-checked him in the back while he was trying to regain his faculties.

Lucic is probably a different story, though, as he seems to just sock people in the jaw at random.
