Los Angeles Kings head coach John Stevens was left shaking his head after a Game 3 loss to Vegas in which star center Anze Kopitar appeared to be butt-ended by Erik Haula, a play left unpenalized by the officials.
"We get a guy suspended for making a hockey play, and he (Haula) butt-ends one of the best players in the world in the face with the butt end of his stick," Stevens said, per TSN. "So, if I was confused before, I'm bewildered now. That's an intent-to-injure play … you guys make the judgment, because it's a bunch of BS, to be honest with you."
The NHL's Department of Player Safety could take another look at this play, but no hearing has been scheduled as of yet.
