Tampa Bay Lightning forward Patrick Maroon was forced to sit out the opening 10 minutes of the third period after letting his frustration get the best of him during Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night.

The officials handed Maroon a 10-minute misconduct after he shot the puck into the Dallas Stars' bench just before the intermission.

Here's a closer look of the incident, which shows the shot actually hit Stars forward Joel Kiviranta, who had scored with 28 seconds left in the frame to give Dallas a 3-1 lead.

Kiviranta appeared no worse for wear in the third period. He took a 46-second shift that began less than a minute into the frame and then jumped over the boards for a 42-second spin about two minutes after his previous shift ended.
