Here’s the play in question:
The incident occurred midway through the second period, with Nash getting five and a game. Potter left the game momentarily but did return, though he only played 3:38 in the final frame and missed Wednesday’s practice with a stiff neck.
It’s still possible Nash could still face a disciplinary hearing or be subjected to a fine. That said, the NHL’s Department of Player Safety acted promptly in scheduling hearings for two other nasty hits from Tuesday night — Jared Cowen on Zemgus Girgensons and Richard Panik on Karl Alzner.
Cowen has since been suspended two games for his headshot on the Sabres rookie.
