BREAKING NEWS: Claude Giroux was given a 1 game suspension by the NHL for a hit on Dainius Zubrus during the 2nd period of last night’s game— Philadelphia Flyers (@NHLFlyers) May 7, 2012
Claude Giroux will miss an elimination game! Colour me shocked! The NHL actually suspended a star player leading up to a big game! I thought the hit deserved a couple games, but honestly I didn't expect it. Now the real question is: If the Flyers win game 5, do they keep Giroux on the bench for game 6? :)
What's your take on the suspension? Was it fair? Too harsh? Too lenient?
Let us know what you think.
