The incident occurred at 13:42 of the third period. Nielsen was assessed a minor penalty for slashing, a nasty response after he and Hanzal were tangled in the corner. Earlier in the period, Hanzal drew the Isles’ ire with a two-minute roughing minor on Michael Grabner.
The incident led to some Danish feuding as Phoenix’s Mikkel Boedker — who, along with Nielsen is one of just five NHLers from Denmark — went after the Isles forward for chopping down his teammate.
