2 games, and he's lucky that's it. You can't "accidentally" stab the butt of the club into someone's face.

From tsn

Minnesota Wild defenceman Brent*Burns has been handed a two-game suspension from the NHL for a butt-end that he delivered to the face of Panthers' forward Steve*Bernier in the dying moments of Friday night's victory by Florida

No. You're lucky we're so nice in Minnesota.

I shut the game off right when play was stopped with 5 seconds to go so I missed a bit of the drama at the end.

Too bad Burns did what he did but it happened. He's maned up to it which is good to see. Scary to think about what this defense is going to look like for a few games...

I thought he'd get 2-3 games. I do think it was accidental, but with an injury a suspension had to come down. I'm willing to bet fans of every other team in the league will think it's a travesty that he's not getting 10+ games. But I have to agree with the 2 game ruling. Burns is not that type of player at all, I truly believe it was a complete accident, and I believe he feels beyond awful about it. And I don't say that to mean he feels sorry about being caught/suspended, he's truly a good guy.

Now if Clutterbuck got butt ended by another player, sure I'd probably be screaming for blood. Even if it was a Lady Byng guy. But compared to other butt ends (Jovo not getting anything, Simmons not getting anything), it seems serious enough.
