Kukla's Korner Hockey

Niklas Backstrom received a match penalty at the end of the game tonight for this cross-check on Rich Peverley.
A match penalty is an automatic suspension until ruled upon, which I am sure will be sometime tomorrow.
Update: Here’s a better video from The Score:
ESPN Boston’s Joe Haggerty reports that Bruins coach Claude Julien isn’t exactly happy with the Capitals’ stick issues:
“The only thing that’s disappointing for me personally is that this is the third time in three games our player has been cross-checked in the face. ... You hope that those things don’t get out of hand,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said. “Somebody else, not us, has to deal with that.”
