Habs News, Torres, Playoffs, Suspensions and More

Morning puck fans!

Another eventful evening in the NHL playoffs, eh?

Phoenix Coyotes' forward Raffi Torres delivered a vicious, head-hunting hit to Chicago Blackhawks' winger Marian Hossa. No doubt more work for Shannahan, who already levied suspensions on Andrew Shaw, Niklas Backstrom, Aaron Asham and James Neal yesterday.

Kamal and myself discussed the playoff mayhem in our most recent Panesar and Moustakas segment.

In game action, the Florida Panthers rallied from a 0-3 deficit to vanquish the New Jersey Devils 4-3, chasing Martin Brodeur in the process.

Meanwhile, the Nashville Predators took a commanding 3-1 lead in their series thanks to a win in Detroit last night.

In short, another night of exciting but at times unsettling play.
