Summarizing Cox and Friedman’s comments from Saturday’s ‘mini Hotstove’

Damien Cox and Elliotte Friedman had about 70 seconds' worth of time to issue their version of the Satellite Hotstove on Saturday's Hockey Night in Canada broadcast, but they sped-talked their way through the following topics:

1. Cox says questions were surrounding Kaberle-Rangers participation in Kaberle's skate in Toronto today as the New Jersey Devils have had Scott Gomez around for over a month, but he can't travel with them on the road as he's not under contract/can't be paid;

Kaberle is allowed to travel with the team, per an NHL memo, for about 10 days before the team has to sign him or let him go, so the Rangers have to make their decision in another 7 days.

2. Friedman reports that while Taylor Hall remains on the IR with a sprained knee, Hall can at least skate early next week, though his timeline has not changed;

3. Friedman says that there will be no supplemental discipline for Alex Ovechkin despite delivering two head hits, including the hit to Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson on Friday, but but he is a "watched player" despite no supplemental discipline;

4. The Department of Player Safety will be looking at Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon's hit on Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Luke Schenn tonight, Schenn injured shoulder, did not return, NHL's DPS will debate whether MacKinnon pushed him or whether Schenn lost an edge;

5. And per Friedman, Florida Panthers defenseman Dmitry Kulikov of Panthers injured his knee against Calgary, and an MRI scheduled for tomorrow:

Man HNIC sucks now that corporate Rogers is running the show. They sure love their “metrosexual’ types, lol.

Patrick Roy face went beet red after that Mackinnon call!  snake
It was a love tap push IMO and hate to admit it but I’m on Roy’s side.
