Pronger Suspended for 1 Game

How in the world did he only get 1 game for that hit last night.

It was a blatant attempt to injure, but beyond that it was his second offense since the payoffs began!

If this was his first I would be ticked off about the 'light penalty' but it would be in keeping with the NHL's guidelines, or lack thereof, in terms of punishment, but being the second, you really have to go out of your way to make allowances to let him stay in the finals.

It's a sad statement about officiating in the NHL these playoffs that you have 2 suspensions in 2 weeks on the same guy and neither resulted in any time in the box.

P.S. I'm sure the Sharks will be surprised that they have a 1 game lead in the Stanley Cup finals. That's accuracy for you.
