Hammer comes down on Dustin Byfuglien: Suspended 4 games
This is surely good news for the L.A. Kings who are only 2 points behind the Jets for the final wild card spot.
According to the NHL DoPS head, Stephane Quintal, used words like “forcefully” and “defenseless” in his explanation. The fact that there was no injury is likely what saved Byfuglien from a far more serious ban. However, the real damage he likely caused will be to his team and the fans of Winnipeg who were on course to make the postseason.
