Sabres’ Phil Housley Strongly Disagrees With Decision Not To Suspend Scott Hartnell

Buffalo Sabres’ head coach Phil Housley isn’t too pleased with the decision to not suspend Nashville Predators’ forward Scott Hartnell for his vicious hit from behind that injured Victor Antipin.

“I do know that our player was taken off on a stretcher, has a broken nose, facial lacerations, and missing teeth,” Housley told the media on Monday, according to The Buffalo News’ Mike Harrington.

“So in that respect, I strongly disagree with the NHL decision,” Housley continued. “It’s unfortunate for Victor … I just felt with that situation, (the ruling) wasn’t handled the right way.”

Antipin, who laid on the ice face down and motionless for several minutes, was eventually stretchered off the ice during the game.
