The NHL has suspended Stoll one day after he hit Sharks defenseman Ian White from behind in the opening game of the best-of-seven series. The hit came with 25 seconds to go in the first period Thursday night. White left with an apparent head injury and did not return.
Joe Pavelski scored 14:44 into overtime to give the Sharks a 3-2 victory.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
