The Winnipeg Jets will have Dustin Byfuglien in the lineup for Game 4 vs. the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday.
Byfuglien will not be subject to supplementary discipline for his mauling of Ducks forward Corey Perry in the Jets’ OT loss Monday.
The 30-year-old defenceman sent Perry head-first to the ice following the latter’s go-ahead goal in the second period of Game 3.
While it wasn’t exactly Dale Hunter on Pierre Turgeon in 1993, it was most certainly a cheap-shot on a defenceless player celebrating a goal.
Byfuglien was suspended four games on April 2 for a vicious cross-check to the back of New York Rangers forward J.T. Miller’s head.
The Ducks tied the Jets late in Game 3 before Rickard Rakell scored the game-winner just over five minutes into the overtime period.
The Jets head into Game 4 down 3-0 in the best-of-seven series.
