Wings’ Kronwall Suspended 1 Game for Hit on Lightning’s Kucherov

Niklas Kronwall will sit for Game 7.  The Detroit Red Wings won’t have their bruising blueliner in the lineup for the series-deciding game against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night.  Kronwall has been suspended one game for charging.  Your browser does not support iframes.

Sens’ Suffer Quick Whistle on Potential Game-Tying Goal

You never want a game to be decided by a whistle.  It’s even worse when your entire season comes to an end because of one.  Unfortunately for the Ottawa Senators, a quick whistle from referee Chris Lee cost them the game-tying goal in an eventual 2-0 Canadiens win that saw the Sens eliminated from the postseason.   With 13:05 to go in the second period, Ottawa’s Jean-Gabriel Pageau appeared to score on the rebound of a Mark Borowiecki shot.  Before Pageau could even raise his arms to celebrate, referee Chris Lee had already waved off the potential game-tying goal.  “It...
