Backstrom Suspended 1 Game

Recommended Posts

Someone mentioned that Backstrom's crosscheck to Peverley's head was largely a result of the Bruins' targeting of Backstrom's head all night. I'm not saying that should factor into Backstrom's suspension but I do think it shows a problem: why should players get away with targeting a player's head during a game - even if it's those stupid rabbit punches like Marchand did to Daniel last year? It's one thing if it's a fight, it's another if all game a guy is getting shots to the face or the back of their helmet.
