Dustin Brown, Milan Lucic avoid suspension
The NHL will not be pursuing any disciplinary action against Milan Lucic and Dustin Brown.
Dustin Brown and Milan Lucic will not be fined or suspended for their questionable hits in last night's game, according to Jon Rosen:
No further discipline for Brown/Lucic. Hockey ops spoke with the league and will talk to the players regarding the call.— Jon Rosen (@lakingsinsider) October 8, 2015
The Sharks feel that both Lucic and Kings' captain Dustin Brown should face some kind of discipline, with Peter DeBoer quoted as saying he "felt they were a couple of dangerous plays."
Couture and Lucic also traded jabs about the hits. Couture said "You're supposed to finish your checks. I didn't think there were players you're not allowed to hit in the league." Shots fired.
It will be interesting to see where this goes in future matchups between the Kings and Sharks.
