hell no. if anything, with a suspension pending, he should have thrown up the elbow and made it worth while.

on a more serious note, I doubt anything happens but it's upsetting to see these types of hits go unpunished nightly. however when it is a hab, we're the one to be made an example. an example which will lead to more inconsistency. they'll go on an 'making example spree' only to realize that, as unfortunate as they are, these type of plays cannot be avoided.

if an elbow come up, or targeted his head, sure give him a suspension. honestly don't see this as even review worthy.

I hope pacioretty continues to finish his checks as such. good hard hit, 9/10 the guy isn't even rattled there.
