ANAHEIM, Calif. -- What a cheap shot by Ducks defenseman James Wisniewski on Brent Seabrook in the second period on Wednesday night.
A high-stick/elbow/charge to Seabrook's face, and all he got was a minor penalty for charging. Gutless no-call by referees Paul Devorski and Ian Walsh.
Wisniewski's head shot knocked Seabrook out and he retired to the dressing room. The Hawks later announced that Seabrook wouldn't be returning to the game.
And the NHL is trying to clean up its game? That's a joke.
He's a postgame quote from Wisniewski:
"I think you can see my face. What happened was my face hit his face because my nose got all cut up from my visor and all that stuff. He’s one of my real good buddies. That’s not what at all what I was (doing). I just pinched down from the blue line. I thought he had the puck so I finished my check. (When) something like that happens, you don’t want to see that."
