In the second period of Thursday’s home game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Mike Green hit Brett Connolly hard while he was pinned along the boards by Dmitry Orlov. Connolly was already starting to fall, but the principal point of contact was the head. NHL VP of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan has suspended him for three games for this hit.
