09:13 AM ET 12.15 | A key moment of Saturday's game was Jets forward Anthony Peluso hitting Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski from behind late in the second period, taking a major penalty and the Stars scoring twice on the resulting five-minute power play to turn a 3-3 game into a 5-3 lead heading into the second intermission. Peluso's hit on Goligoski did not sit well with Stars coach Lindy Ruff. "I thought the Peluso hit was a joke, for a guy that plays that amount of time and runs a guy like Goligoski from behind. What's he play, three or four minutes a game? Go run one of our bigger guys," Ruff said.

I'm sure the Pens/Detroit hit was a simple misunderstanding and somehow Abdelkator will be blamed for being at the wrong place at the wrong time. It's not Deryk Engelland fault he went shoulder to the head, it's ALWAYS the victims fault when the Pens are involved.

Nonis is appealing David's two game suspension.

He wants 15.

The end boards are getting a call from Shanahan.

I predict a 4 game ban for getting in the way.

I believe this contract was written in the honour of The Irked One.

Seems as though Abdelkader's jaw got in the way of Engelland shoulder according to Cherry.

I agree. The Pens get all the preferential treatment. Mr. Engelland has even been invited for tea and cookies with Mr. Shanahan.

Excellent, I think they should serve some Walkers Shortbread to go with a nice English Breakfast tea.

You must have watched Coaches' Corner because that's what Don said. While still holding Derek responsible for the hit.

I honestly didn't. Watched some FIS ski racing at the time.

Yeah, we live life on the edge at the Schad residence.

Just watched it and Cherry basically said that since the Pens were involved, the penalty for Thornton was stiffer. He also called Neal's shot a "kick in the head", which is pretty much what it was.
