I heard about this one on Twitter before I saw it, and even before I was able to see the video, I'd figured that this wouldn't yield a suspension. Philadelphia Flyers forward Zach Rinaldo gave Washington Capitals forward Mikhail Grabovski quite the elbow, receiving a major penalty and game misconduct for his efforts...
But Grabovski got back up and played on the Capitals' power play, and as we've seen regarding the Department of Situational Discipline, the NHL tends to penalize based upon injury as opposed to intent.
