NEW YORK – Philadelphia Flyers forward Claude Giroux has been suspended for one game for delivering an illegal check to the head of New Jersey Devils forward Dainius Zubrus during the teams' Eastern Conference Semifinal game in New Jersey on Sunday, May 6, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.
The incident occurred at 19:56 of the second period. A minor penalty for illegal check to the head was assessed to Giroux.
He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
