Shanahan: No supplemental discipline for Morris, either (with video)

May 16, 2012, 4:31 PM EDT

Shortly after announcing Coyotes captain Shane Doan was off the hook, Brendan Shanahan let Derek Morris skate as well.

The NHL’s discipline czar tweeted that the Phoenix defenseman wouldn’t be subjected to supplemental discipline for his knee on Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi during a 4-0 loss in Game 2.

“We agree with the penalty called on the ice,” Shanahan explained. “Yet do not feel this rises to the level of SD [supplementary discipline].”

Morris was tagged with a two-minute kneeing minor at 12:43 of the third period, a hit that — upon further review — looked more intentional than initial views suggested.

(FF to :09)

Scuderi appeared to be in some discomfort following the hit, but returned to play three more shifts in the third.

    what a waste of internet bandwidth. sadly, Shanaban is embarrassing himself everyday.

    Honestly, I give up on even making an opinion on what Shanny’s decisions are anymore.

    Just do whatever man, do whatever……

    What a joke. That wasn’t a knee, it was an accident. Doan didn’t board Lewis, lewis was in the wrong. He was playing hockey and got in the way of Doan.

    Can anyone sense the sarcasm?
