Panthers GM Dale Tallon called the league office and has asked for a video review of what appeared to be an intentional blindside shot to the head of defenseman Dmitry Kulikov by Sabres’ Patrick Kaleta in the third period, according to assistant GM Mike Santos.
Kaleta was given two minor penalties (charging and roughing) for four minutes, but the new rule on such hits calls for a 5-minute major penalty and automatic game misconduct, with a possibility of suspension.
Hunting for a video of the hit was unsuccessful, did anyone see it?
