Buffalo's Patrick Kaleta will face a hearing with Brendan Shanahan, NHL Senior Vice President, Player Safety and Hockey Operations, on Thursday to discuss his head-butt infraction against Philadelphia's Jakub Voracek in Wednesday night's game in Buffalo, a 3-2 victory for the Flyers.
I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
