National Hockey League to hold hearing on Sabres' Ristolainen's hit on Guentzel

Nick Bonino scored with 5:29 remaining to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.

While this goal against the Sabres only counts for one on the scoreboard, it should be worth at least five. Both of them are in the top three of the scoring race, too, as they entered Tuesday two points behind Connor McDavid's league-leading 82.

The Penguins announced after the game that Guentzel suffered a concussion.

With only eight games left in the 2016-17 regular season, the Sabres could be without the service of Rasmus Ristolainen for the majority of those contests - I would not be surprised if the DPOS hands Risto a five-game suspension, although I feel it should be less based on the fact that he does not have a history of dirty play.

'Angel of Death' serial killer badly beaten in Ohio prison
FILE - In this September 1987 file photo, serial killer Donald Harvey stands before a judge during sentencing in Cincinnati. Working as a nurse's assistant, Harvey said he had killed his victims to end their suffering as many were chronically ill.

Guentzel would attempt to get up and go to the bench but he stumbled and looked in bad shape. However, the unofficial title of "Best Hockey Player in the World" still belongs to Sidney Crosby. It was a possible game-chainging penalty kill at the time for the Sabres. The first goal of the game came on a power play late in the 1st period when Sidney Crosby did something spectacular. On two separate occasions, Crosby put out one arm to shield a defender's stick from knocking away the puck. Just last week, the Arizona Coyotes lost a defenseman of their own - rookie Anthony DeAngelo - for an illegal boarding hit less than two minutes into their game against the St. Louis Blues. He skates through all 4 Sabres players (none of them looking very interested in playing either) then chips a one-handed, back-hand shot past Robin Lehner who has no idea that one was coming. Wow. He had a date with the Tooth Fairy after losing two front teeth when he was high sticked by Evander Kane with 1:25 left in the game.

Crosby also continued his dominance over Buffalo, upping his total to 16 goals, 35 assists for 51 points in 34 career games. You really need to see the replay from behind the net to appreciate it, but once you see that, you see that Crosby scored the goal on a one-handed wrister.

Ristolainen. gets a game misconduct.

The teams were tied 1-all until Wheeler beat goalie Steve Mason at 7:02 of the third period.
