Maple Leafs' Dion Phaneuf Suspended Two Games for Boarding

NEW YORK – Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf has been suspended for two games, without pay, for boarding Boston Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller during NHL Game No. 450 in Toronto on Sunday, Dec. 8, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today.

The bias is evident. MaCleod got 5 for a game-speed, unintentional hit. Phaneuf saw numbers the whole way and had plenty of time to not throw a dangerous hit.

It will give Morgan Reilly some much-needed ice time, so I'm fine with it. They didn't keep him up from juniors to sit him in the press box.

It comes down to the name plate on the back, if it says Shawn Thornton or John Scott expect major suspensions, if it says James Neal or Dion Phaneuf expect minimal games...

What a great "team toughness" response by the Bruins. Unfortunately, it's what we've come to expect from them more and more. There's no way Phaneuf should have gotten off the ice unscathed after that hit. When is someone on the Bruins going to knock this f*cker's windshield off and pound the sh!t out of him?

Right? Marchand was standing right there. I'm shocked he didn't do anything

Chara was out there too and didn't do anything but scold Princess.

Want to know what the real funny thing is? Phaneuf skated away casually after delivering this hit without a worry in the world.
