Flames' Bourque faces disciplinary hearing today
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.

Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
