04:28 PM ET 05.06 | The NHL will not pursue any supplemental discipline as a result of the fight-filled third period between the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal on Sunday night. In total, 12 fighting majors, five game misconducts, five roughing, two misconducts and an instigator penalty were called in the final 13 minutes of the contest. This included a line brawl following the Senators' taking a 4-1 lead. The most controversial component of this decision is Canadiens' forward Rene Bourque avoiding discipline for a blatant elbow on Cory Conacher.

Wow....crazy they even thought of it

May 6, 2013  04:31 PM ET

I guess they were disgusted too.

To "administer discipline" would probably take out too many players........no fun watching agame with only 2 goalies and 2 players left..

Game 4 will be as quiet as can be so no need to discipline anyone.

I'd like to see Chris Neal dish out some serious discipline to Subban. Watching that punk jump the Sens player (Conacher? I forget who) when he wasn't looking, then continue to pound away after he was down on the ice had me wanting to jump through the screen. I guess I shouldn't expect that POS to abide by the code, since he won't fight anyone face to face anyway. What a poosay. Great skills, but no sack whatsoever.

NHL: We'll just pretend that none of this ever took place. Now behave yourselves.

Guess he took out all his anger on poor Justin Abdelkader now a justified hoodlum.

Little Gallagher will have another huge game.

PK Chelios will rise like The Phoenix and serve notice.

Budaj will start.

Montreal wins Game 4 easily and goes home tied.

what a joke shanny is.... gryba gets 2 games for a clean but unfortunate hit but bourque elbows a player in the head.... nothing..... prust crosschecks and elbows conacher to the back of the head.... nothing, complete joke Ill agree that the 5 on 5 brawl should have no suspensions added.... but if ference gets one for a blatant elbow to the head then id love to hear shananagians explaination for there being no suspension for either of those elbows.

Phoenix isn't the bird I'm thinking of...more like turkey. Hopefully, by the end of game 4, he'll look the way one looks on Thanksgiving Day.

You don't seriously expect to hear a sensible explanation from Shanny, do you?

OR.... the sens hit everything that moves, therrien loses his top and the team follows suit, ala game 3. What goalie plays wont matter, the sens will spank them again and go back to mtl to try and finish the habs off.
