09:44 AM ET 03.17 | Caps Coach Dale Hunter said he expects the NHL to review Jets defenseman Mark Stuart's high hit on Marcus Johansson in the first period of Friday's costly 3-2 loss in Winnipeg. "It was a high hit and the league will review it," Hunter said. Stuart appeared to use his forearm to drive Johansson's head into the end boards behind the Winnipeg net. The hit, which knocked Johansson's helmet off, also appeared to be a step late.

It's gonna fall btwn the 29th and 31st. Hate how optimistic I became that they would be able to lose properly...

As I posted late yesterday, I'm confusing TGO coz I'm now cheering for the Laffs.

9th in the East and 14th overall is doable.

Hard to predict what Shanny will say about this one. I'm leaning more towards a fine rather than suspension.

Toronto hockey is boring, even Kessel knows it.

Either way, Pittsburgh Penguins fans should consider the Winnipeg Jets for their second favorite team...especially after the way the team treated Ovechkin physically and the fans treated him verbally with the "Crosby's better" chant.
Good stuff!

If Stuart doesn't get at least 3 or 4 games for that hit then The Sheriff is far more incompetent that we all think he is.

They will get themselves close, and screw it up.

Malkin didn't even get a talking to with the hit on Boychuk.

No review by Shanny until the clock strikes midnight and St. Paddy's Day has passed.
