Some but not all of Habs-Rangers ugliness will be reviewed by Department of Player Safety

From ESPN New York's Katie Strang:

New York Rangers defenseman John Moore will have a hearing Wednesday for his illegal hit to the head of Montreal Canadiens forward Dale Weise during the Rangers' 7-4 loss in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals at Bell Centre on Tuesday night.

The NHL's Department of Player Safety announced the hearing via their official twitter account after the game.

Moore was assessed a match penalty at 10:41 of the third period, when he drilled Weise.

Weise was disoriented after the play and had to be supported by P.K. Subban as he appeared to regain his balance.

Weise briefly went to the league-mandated "quiet room" designated to treat potential head injuries. He returned to the game later in the third period.

Strang continues, noting that Derek Dorsett engaged in some shenanigans of his own.

Here's the Moore-on-Weise hit...
