The Toronto Maple Leafs forward was given a match penalty for an elbow to the head of New York Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh near the end of the first period in Thursday’s game at the Air Canada Centre.
#NYR Ryan McDonagh will not return tonight for precautionary reasons.

McDonagh, who remained on the Rangers’ bench until the end of the period, recently missed four games due to a concussion suffered when he was sucker punched by Wayne Simmonds. The Flyers forward was not suspended for his shot to McDonagh’s head, but will Komarov’s fate be different?
Watch the play above and have your say.
