Flames' forward Rene Bourque will have a disciplinary hearing with the NHL this morning after delivering an elbow to Capitals' center Nicklas Backstrom in the third period of Washington's 3-1 win Tuesday night.

Bourque went to the penalty box for elbowing, while Backstrom stayed in the game for two more shifts. He was unable to finish the game.

Bourque was suspended two games last month for a hit on Brent Seabrook of the Chicago Blackhawks.

I didn't think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tonight.
