The salary cap is going up and business is booming, but still the NHL often gets the most attention for ugly stuff that happens on the ice.
Ugly was front and centre Saturday night during the Boston Bruins-Pittsburgh Penguins game that led to two suspensions and three players on the injured list. But instead of expressing concern over Shawn Thornton and James Neal, the league's board of governors gave vice-president of player safety Brendan Shanahan a thumbs up for his handling of discipline.
"I believe the sense of the room is that Brendan Shanahan and the department of player safety has the confidence of the board of governors. He certainly has my confidence," commissioner Gary Bettman said. "It's about modifying an element of the game's culture and we think we've made positive, dramatic steps forward."
