Suspension coming for Carrier?

During the first period of Thursday night’s game against the Boston Bruins, William Carrier delivered a high hit on David Backes.

The hit caused Backes to miss the remainder of the game and it’s one in which player safety might be taking a look at.

Here’s the hit:

Carrier received a two minute penalty for an illegal check to the hit. Just a couple of minutes later, Adam McQuaid came off the bench and headed right for Carrier, drawing an instigator penalty and a 10 minute misconduct.

Was Carrier’s two minute penalty enough or does his hit warrant a suspension? Let us know what you think.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
