Leino may hear from NHL

While Lindy Ruff correctly pointed out after Wednesday night's game that he felt Flyers defenseman Marc-Andre Bourdon should get an NHL hearing for his hit from behind on Nathan Gerbe, league discipline czar Brendan Shanahan might have another play to look at from the game.

Sabres winger Ville Leino might be in trouble for an elbow that brushed the head of Flyers forward Matt Read that didn't connect. There was no penalty on the play but the Versus telecast made an issue of it and so did the TSN studio crew in the video below. No official word yet from the NHL.
