So far, we’ve heard from Taylor Hall‘s teammates and opponents regarding his questionable hit on Cal Clutterbuck.

Again, Hall received a game misconduct and a five-minute major penalty for kneeing on the play.

Sometimes the NHL factors the specific in-game suspension into their own decision-making, but it’s probably worth noting that the Minnesota Wild were up 3-1 late in the third period against the Edmonton Oilers when that happened on Thursday.
