The Chicago Blackhawks may be finished for the season but they also could be a man down to start the next.
In the third period, Chicago’s Jimmy Hayes was given a game misconduct and a 5-minute boarding penalty when he slammed Phoenix Coyotes’ Michal Rozsival from behind and drove him face first into the glass. Rozsival stayed down on the ice for about a minute and then skated off with some assistance at 8:47 of the third.
Hayes received a five-minute boarding penalty and a game misconduct.
The Coyotes eliminated the Blackhawks with a 4-0 victory and will play the Nashville Predators in Round 2 of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Do you think Jimmy Hayes should be suspended for his hit on Michal Rozsival?
