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

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
