No Suspension for Boychuk

From James Mirtle at the Globe & Mail:

The NHL’s acting disciplinarian, Mike Murphy, confirmed Tuesday that Boston Bruins defenceman Johnny Boychuk will not be suspended for his hit on Canucks winger Mason Raymond in the opening seconds of Monday’s Game 6.

According to Canucks GM Mike Gillis, Raymond “sustained a vertebrae compression fracture” on the play and is expected to miss three to four months.

Murphy said via email that the league’s hockey operations department reviewed the play but deemed it an “awkward collision” and not worthy of a suspension.

“[It was an] awkward collusion between two players battling for space/room,” Murphy wrote. “[You] rarely see a player bumped when in the position Raymond was in (bent over forward).”

Canucks Not Happy With No Call On Raymond Hit

Sportsnet (headline on their hockey page) is reporting sources are telling Sportsnet’s Dan Murphy that Vancouver Canucks forward Mason Raymond suffered a fractured vertebrae while Darren Dreger of TSN writes,

The Vancouver Canucks were very upset that there was no penalty call on the play where Mason Raymond was injured on the first shift of the game.

Canucks general manager Mike Gillis stormed out of the TD Garden after Game 6, questioning a lot of people as he headed toward the Canucks’ bus as to whether or not anyone saw the puck near Raymond when he was hit by Johnny Boychuk.

Bruins Want A Review Of Myers Hit

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

If it’s up to the Bruins players, 19-year-old Sabres defenseman and Calder Trophy candidate Tyler Myers would be one of the first players to be penalized under the blind side, head shot “Savard” rule the NHL adopted last month.

Johnny Boychuk was drilled in the side of the jaw by an elevated Myers’ shoulder – that was either a lateral hit or a hit from behind—during the third period, and went down in a heap before quickly recovering and hopping back into the play.

It ranked high on the dangerous scale, but ultimately didn’t put the tough Boychuk out of commission with a head injury. That’s both the good and bad news….

“I didn’t see him coming, I didn’t have the puck and I felt like it was a shot to the head, I guess,” said Boychuk. “Then they called it the freakin’ hit of the night in the arena with the fans going crazy.  He was coming right at my head.

“[He hit] me right on the side of the jaw. I guess they’re letting that go now. I expected a physical game no matter what. It is playoffs and everybody is going hard and putting everything on the line because they want to win the Cup.”
