Danick Gauthier was suspended for yesterday’s playoff game at Harbour Station for what the league called a “dangerous bodycheck.”
Via Hockey Fights Plus, here is the video of the play.
The play occurred 59 seconds into the second period of Game One of the Saint John Sea Dogs’ playoff game against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles Friday night. Gauthier was given a two-minute interference penalty for his actions.
MacIntosh did not play in Saturday’s game against Saint John. According to News 88.9, MacIntosh has a suspected head injury and will be reevaluated when the team returns home to Sydney.
If MacIntosh stays out, it will be a huge loss for Cape Breton. He finished tied with Logan Shaw for tops in team scoring with 46 points during the regular season. He led the team in helpers with 32.
The Eagles have be unable to generate much of any offense in the opening round playoff series so far. In Games One and Two combined, Cape Breton has been outscored 17-1.
Games Three is Tuesday at Centre 200.
