Blues' Ott receives misconduct late in Game 3 vs. Wild, could face discipline

Timothy T. Ludwig / USA Today

The St. Louis Blues lost Game 3 Monday to the Minnesota Wild and they may also have lost a veteran presence in the process.

Blues forward Steve Ott received a two-minute minor for roughing and a 10-minute misconduct with just 58 seconds left in the game and his team down 3-0. 

Ott went after Wild defenseman Marco Scandella after delivering a hit to the blueliner and then looked to do the same to Jared Spurgeon who came in to help out his teammate. 

After the game, goaltender Devan Dubnyk told reporters it looked like Ott was trying to pull at Spurgeon's mouth, nose and eyes

If that is true, one would think Ott could face some supplementary discipline.
