SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -Florida Panthers left wing David Booth was released from a Philadelphia hospital Sunday, a day after sustaining a concussion on a hit from Flyers captain Mike Richards.

Also Sunday, the NHL said Richards will not be suspended for the hit. He was given a major penalty for interference and a game misconduct for intent to injure.

Booth left the ice on a stretcher with 2:55 left in the second period following the blow to the face. The Flyers won the game 5-1.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
