Staal has missed the past 29 games with an eye injury. The team has not said if he will play in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Washington Capitals on Monday at Madison Square Garden (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2, RDS2).
I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
