I don't know what the hell he was thinking.

That's 3-4 games WITHOUT a prior history.

We're losing defensemen left and right.

Should be a suspension.

That should easily be a 4-5 game suspension. What a joke he only got 4 minutes.

I'd be shocked if Spurgeon wasn't back because he just got his cheek cut.

No question that was incredibly dirty. But wouldn't you also consider that spearing?

It looks just as bad if not worse with the context.

What kind of context would make it acceptable?

Only thing that happened was a casual crosscheck.

First Duncan Keith now Nyquist with the deliberate slash to the face. Kinda wonder why the Wild players get smacked in the face

Terrible play from Nyquist, and really dangerous. I get that players retaliate for things, but you should definitely not be using your stick like that to do so. Should be a suspension, but with the NHL this year, who knows.

Love how the announcers were saying "Nyquist wasn't that kind of guy." Welll.........now he is.

That's... a face spear? Wow. Totally uncharacteristic, but he deserves a couple of games.

Not denying it's bad, just wondering where the puck is in relation to the play and how it looks in normal speed.
