While Chimera got a game misconduct for his bad deeds and the Bruins received a five-minute major power play opportunity, but no goals resulted in the interchange. Boston couldn’t score on that lengthy man advantage, however, and Washington went on to win a wild 3-2 shootout, securing a crucial two points.
That being said, the obvious question is whether or not Chimera should be available for the Capitals next game (and perhaps beyond). He certainly took plenty of strides before the hit, but the suspension-worthiness is up to debate.
So debate away, then. Was a five-minute major punishment enough? If a suspension is in order, how long should it be? Let us know.
