Phaneuf Avoids Disciplinary Action

Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf will not be punished for a brutal hit he administered on Daniel Paille in the third period of game 2 yesterday. Phaneuf closed in on Paille and hit him up high as he was playing the puck along the boards.

According to numerous viable sources, the NHL will not call for a disciplinary hearing regarding the incident that left Paille with a bloody nose. At first glance it seemed as if it was Phaneuf’s elbow connecting with a headshot. Slow motion revealed it was indeed his shoulder.

Phaneuf was not penalized on the play and Toronto certainly dodges a bullet.
