Sidney Crosby will pay for acting classes, with his teeth

After his unpunished nutshot on the Sabres' Ryan O'Reilly, Sidney Crosby was a marked man for the rest of the game. And with barely any time left in the game, Evander Kane's stick bounced off Crosby's face, only for the player to go down like he was rear-ended by a dump truck.

Rasmus Ristolainen ejected for big hit on Jake Guentzel

Sabres top defenseman Rasmus RIstolainen has been ejected from the game for this hit on the Pens Jake Guentzel. On the replay, you'll see that the puck never made it to the forward who was looking behind for the puck, while Risto turns around and does/doesn't really try to get out of his way either. It'll be interesting to see how the NHL rule this one, especially since there was contact with the head.
