Rangers defenceman John Moore suspended 2 games by NHL for hit on Canadiens' Dale Weise

NEW YORK, N.Y. - New York Rangers defenceman John Moore was suspended two games by the NHL on Wednesday for an illegal check to Montreal Canadiens forward Dale Weise's head in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Moore received a match penalty for the hit in the third period of Montreal's 7-4 home victory Tuesday night.

The Rangers lead the series 3-2. Game 6 is Thursday night in New York.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
