Rangers' Hagelin, Sens' Carkner, Blackhawks' Shaw face hearings
Rangers forward Carl Hagelin, Senators defenseman Matt Carkner and Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw face hearings with the NHL's player safety dept.

Three players will have hearings with the NHL Department of Player safety following their actions in Saturday's playoff games.

New York Rangers forward Carl Hagelin and Ottawa Senators defenseman Matt Carkner will each have hearings Sunday afternoon.

Carkner received a five-minute major for fighting, a two-minute minor for instigating and a game misconduct at 2:15 of the first period of the Senators' 3-2 overtime win over the Rangers.

Hagelin was given a major penalty for elbowing at 10:32 of the second period after making contact with Ottawa captain Daniel Alfredsson's head. Alfredsson went to the dressing room and did not return.

Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw will have a hearing Monday for an incident with Phoenix goaltender Mike Smith in Chicago's 4-3 overtime win Saturday.

Shaw was assessed a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct at 7:11 of the second period after making conduct with Smith behind the Phoenix net. Smith was down for several minutes but was able to finish the game.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
