Looked like the closest referee was ducking the puck just before the hit.
I suppose he didn't see it.

It's the right call people. Take off the flames goggles.

Hopefully Tkachuk goes after Doughty even harder next time.

Two games is garbage. Should have been two minutes for elbowing. The NHL wheel of justice is brutal, where's the consistency? So the precedent is set. I better see the next guy that does this get two games

Because he got suspended for taking a cheap shot at him?

Welcome back Hathaway - definitely the guy who deserves to be called up

9 Pts in 12 games since being sent down and was a key reason Stockton has turned their season sowewhat back around.

You guys sure are whiny about something that is completely legitimate, and I say this as a guy that's had a Tkachuk jersey since November.

This league does not take hits to the head lightly.

Pretty condescending comment.

I was on record condemning it as a dirty intentional play. That said, with the utterly laughable inconsistency on the NHL's part with not suspending similar incidents at all, I think questioning the number of games / the suspension at all is completely valid and has nothing to do with "Flames goggles".

If the NHL doesn't like it, it should show some consistency for a change.

Would have been hard to argue one game, two? Eh, makes sense I guess but considering the stuff they let go it's a little frustrating

I was dead wrong about this. The NHL is a bizarre place these days.

But I still feel the same way about the play.

Yeah. Guy with NHL experience who will contribute to the 4th line. Probably a better call than Janko right now, although we real know their ceilings are very different

Can't wait to hear about all of the retroactive suspensions coming in the wake of this new stance.

I like to point out that no angle in the video shows contact from Tkachuk's elbow to Doughty's head.

Will someone please show me the video that has the elbow initiating contact with the face of Doughty. I want to be on board with this, but it looks like a crazy dive to me. The player was uninjured on the play.
