Oilers' Nurse headbutt Kings' Danault

OILERS' NURSE WITH A BIG HEADBUTT ON KINGS' DANAULT IN GAME FIVE

MAY 11, 2022  (7H44)      TIM TUCKER
Game five produced a hard-fought battle between the LA Kings and Edmonton Oilers in their opening round series of the Stanley Cup playoffs Tuesday night. It was the Kings who would ultimately come out on top, scoring the game winning goal early in overtime to win the game 5-4 and take a 3-2 series lead. With seconds to go in the second period, Edmonton's Darnell Nurse appeared to get away with a blatant penalty during a sequence.

The Kings were pressing on a powerplay, with forward Phil Danault parked in front of the Oilers net in an attempt to cause a distraction and/or tip a puck. Following a shot by a teammate, Danault was met by a pretty brutal headbutt from Nurse.



There was no call on the play. It will be interesting to see if Player Safety gets involved with this one. Headbutts are very much frowned upon in the NHL.
