According to reports, Tim Thomas won’t face a disciplinary hearing for his high-stick on Boston’s Carl Soderberg in Tuesday night’s 6-2 loss, nor will Buffalo’s Mike Weber for an elbow on Washington’s Nicklas Backstrom.
Thomas was given a two-minute minor for the infraction.
As for Weber — who also evaded a hearing, according to the Washington Post — he came under fire after catching Backstrom with a high hit late in regulation of Washington’s 5-4 OT win:
Weber wasn’t penalized on the play, but Backstrom addressed the hit following the game.
“I was going for a change, that’s the only thing I know,” he said, per The Post. “You saw the hit yourself, make your own judgment if it belongs in this league or not.”
