Eric Gryba Suspended Two Games for Illegal Check to Head

NEW YORK -- Ottawa Senators defenseman Eric Gryba has been suspended for two games for an illegal check to the head of Montreal Canadiens forward Lars Eller during Game One of the teams' Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series in Montreal on Thursday, May 2, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today.

The incident occurred at 13:28 of the second period. Gryba was assessed a major penalty for interference and a game misconduct.

Bullsh!t. Here comes the crying about how it is some sort of favouritism towards the Habs.

Me too. I don't know how Shanahan sleeps at night with what he went from to what he has become. I'm guessing it must be aided with huge piles of cash all around him.

I believe it was determined to be a "reckless play". Seems like a cop out they're gonna use to suspend guys that shouldn't be.

Don't agree with this suspension.

It's not because he's a Hab, it's because he got a concussion on the play. The new NHL decides after the fact whether a legal hit is illegal because of the damage that it causes. If you want to make that check illegal, then do so. But don't change the outcome as a result of the injury. This isn't torts.

This is a fanbase that can get obnoxious at times. There's going to be all the people comparing this to Wolski's hit on Alfredsson last year. Or the Karlsson cut by Matt Cooke. Hopefully the suspension means that everyone is on notice to behave tonight.

How many games did Diaz get for making a reckless play? He's the real culprit.

Only reckless play was on Diaz's part, he should have gotten the two games., not Gryba.

Shanahan can't possibly be this gutless (afraid of the rioting to follow a "no suspension" call).

I hate this league more and more each day. How they can justify that is beyond me.

I wonder if the Montreal PD received enough 911 calls last night to warrant a criminal investigation into Eric Gryba.

What does Tortorella have to with anything? haha. But yeah that is garbage the way they've been doing this for the last few years and I don't see it changing any time soon.
