Pacioretty Explains His Hit On Eaton

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

“I remember going in on the forecheck and I thought he was going to turn into me but it didn’t end up that way,” Pacioretty said. “It’s a fast game and sometimes you make mistakes and I definitely made a mistake there and hurt our team. I obviously hurt that player. I’m disappointed with what happened and I wish I could take that back.”

The game misconduct triggers an automatic review by the National Hockey League and Martin was asked whether he thought Pacioretty would be suspended.

“I would hope not,” he said. “He’s not that kind of player. He went in with good speed to finish his check and their player turned at the last minute.”
