He was obviously fine in the third though.

I agree that suspending based on resulting injury is a very stupid tactic, and that has to change. My personal opinion on this hit is that it's borderline, because it's violent interference full speed, but it's hard to say whether he was intentionally targeting the head. Still, the onus is on Giroux NOT to do that.

If he misses the game because of a suspension and we lose, no, he won't be allowed to handshake. His status as star, unofficial captain, or top scorer doesn't matter in that case.
