Report: NHL looking into Stempniak's spear on Gostisbehere

It was an up-and-down third period Saturday for Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere.

Shortly after establishing a new NHL record for rookie defensemen by scoring to extend his points streak to 11 games, Gostisbehere took a spear to the midsection from New Jersey Devils forward Lee Stempniak.
