Nashville Predators forward Jordin Tootoo will have a disciplinary hearing Monday afternoon following his hit on Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller during Saturday's game.

With 4:06 left in the second period, Tootoo carried the puck into the Buffalo zone down the left side and drove hard to the net. As Tootoo arrived in the crease, he collided with Miller.

Tootoo was assessed a major penalty for charging and given a game misconduct.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
