But that's over and done with. It seems like again the Wild doctors can't quickly diagnose a concussion.
The penalty was spot-on for me given that Mittens was in a defenseless position; however I am fine with the call of no suspension even with this injury.

The latter part is a little worrying, although it's hard to comment on the matter as I'm not a doctor nor have any idea what I'm talking about.
