BUCHNEVICH SUSPENDED FOR CROSS-CHECKING MANTHA IN THE FACE

The NHL's Department of Player Safety has decided on a suspension for Pavel Buchnevich after he cross-checked Anthony Mantha in the face Wednesday. However, it's not a long one. Buchnevich will sit for one game. With the New York Rangers already out of the playoffs, it means nothing to the team standings-wise.

It is meaningful, however, in the context of what led to Buchnevich cross-checking Mantha. it all started earlier this week with when Tom Wilson of the Washington Capitals was expected to be suspended for punching Buchnevich in the back of the head while he was lying defenceless on the ice. Wilson received a $5000 fine instead, despite his lengthy history of suspensions. Many will view this as a massive double-standard on the part of Player Safety. You can view the cross-check in the video below, which also gives DoPS' reasons for the suspension.
