The Carolina Hurricanes forward was ejected for hitting Nic Dowd of the Washington Capitals in the second period of Game 2, on what the officials deemed was a hit to the head.

Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind'Amour was incensed about the call and later expressed his frustration to NBC's Pierre McGuire.

Dowd left the game after the hit but returned later in the period.
