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

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
