Niklas Kronwall feels that his hit on Jakub Voracek on Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers was clean, and the league appears to agree as he was handed no suspension.
During the second period, Kronwall smashed into Jakub Voracek, who had his head down, straight in the mouth with his shoulder. Kronwall never left his feet, but the Flyers were none too pleased and spent the rest of the game trying to egg him and other Wings players into fights. Voracek was forced to leave to get stitches around his mouth, but Kronwall did not receive a penalty for the play and no suspension was handed down by the NHL as reported by Bob McKenzie on Wednesday morning.
