Marco Scandella signed a contract extension with the Minnesota Wild on Saturday, and on Saturday night, as CBS Sports' Adam Gretz noted, Scandella may have spent some of that money after hitting St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie (who would emerge unscathed...eventually...) in the head:
That's a suspension. Period.
from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,
David Krejci, three floors above the North Station rail tracks, left the action early in overtime last night when he suffered a head-on collision with the No. 74 commuter train known as the TJ Oshie Express.
Oshie, the hard-charging St. Louis center in the No. 74 sweater, hammered head on with Krejci along the boards in front of the visitor’s penalty box at the Garden. The stunned Krejci, who suffered a season-ending wrist injury in last season’s playoffs, was first rocked by Oshie’s shoulder to his head. Krejci then slammed his head against the top of the boards, and it looked as if the point of contact was near his left temple.
