Pittsburgh’s James Neal doesn’t have a supplemental disciplinary hearing scheduled for his high cross check on Detroit’s Luke Glendening during Thursday’s 5-4 OT loss, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
The incident occurred early in the second period, with Neal picking up a two-minute minor for the infraction:
Glendening wasn’t hurt on the play and finished with nearly 19 minutes of ice time on the night.
Neal, 26, was playing against Detroit after missing the Pens’ last two games with a concussion. He has a fairly length history with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety during his six-year career, drawing three suspensions — which includes a five-gamer from this past December for kneeing Boston’s Brad Marchand in the head.
