The Rangers have released the following statement on the suspension of Carl Hagelin:
The New York Rangers accept the NHL’s three-game suspension of Carl Hagelin and will not pursue an appeal. However, we are thoroughly perplexed in the ruling’s inconsistency with other supplementary discipline decisions that have been made throughout this season and during the playoffs. We will have no further comment on this decision.
Nothing for Phillips??? I guess someone should just go right up to Karlsson and punch him right in the face. Where’s the justice?
