Indication from the league is the Craig Adams 5 min hit from behind on Bergeron won’t be enough to warrant additional discipline.
Adams received five for checking from behind and a game misconduct.
Bob Cole and Garry Galley with the call.

It appears as though the injury bug has taken another big bite out of the Ottawa Senators.
After getting Chris Neil and Pascal Leclaire back in the lineup, the Sens may be without captain Daniel Alfredsson for the immediate future after he left Wednesday night’s game against the Penguins with what the team is describing as a shoulder injury.

From Doug Harrison at CBC:
At the start of this year’s Stanley Cup playoffs, NHL fans in Detroit and Pittsburgh probably could have predicted with confidence that Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin would be at, or near, the top of the scoring race and Nicklas Lidstrom would lead all defencemen in points.
Further from the thoughts of the most ardent fans were the names of Detroit rookie forwards Justin Abdelkader and Ville Leino, along with Pittsburgh defenceman Mark Eaton and forward Craig Adams.
But each contributed on the scoresheet, on special teams, in the faceoff circle or simply with their presence to help the Red Wings and Penguins advance to the NHL championship final for the second consecutive season.
Hurricanes forward Craig Adams has been suspended two games for hitting Toronto Maple Leafs forward Alex Steen over the head with his stick in Tuesday’s 3-2 Carolina victory.
Adams had a phone hearing with NHL Vice President Colin Campbell Wednesday morning, with the suspension being handed down a short time later.
