Douglas Murray suspension: Phone hearing scheduled for tomorrow

10

In a bit of bad news for the Canadiens, Douglas Murray will be subject to a phone hearing to decide his suspension for last night's chicken wing elbow to the head of Lightning defenseman Mike Kostka. A phone hearing instead of an in person hearing means that Murray will face a maximum of a five game ban, likely less than that due to being a first time offender. It was probably too much to hope he would receive more.
