Video- Tyler Seguin’s High-Stick On Jared Spurgeon

via Michael Russo of Russo's Rants,

The Wild played six minutes in the third without top-pair defenseman Jared Spurgeon. Tyler Seguin took a baseball swing at a puck in mid-air and instead nailed Spurgeon on the chin. No penalty was called despite Spurgeon leaking blood. He brushed it off afterward, saying, “Just a couple stitches.”

Yeo wanted a five-minute major. The refs told the Wild they didn’t know whose stick hit Spurgeon.

“Obviously, they got a tough job,” Dubnyk said. “I thought the refs did a good job tonight, but it’s tough to see how four guys can miss when the puck’s there. It’s not like it happened away from the play. I would think that everybody is looking at the net when the puck’s up in the air. The other thing I said too is why would our sticks be swinging toward our net? We’re not trying to bat the puck in the net, so we didn’t hit him. Obviously, it’s frustrating when they get the call at the end of the game there, but I thought those guys did a good job tonight. It’s tough for them, if they don’t see it they can’t just make it up either. They don’t get look at the video board and decide what happens, so it’s tough for them too. I thought they did a good job tonight.”

The Wild did win the game, 2-1.
