Sabres Alert

Dahlin suffers concussion in loss

Defenseman left game after elbow from Cernak

During the Sabres’ loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night, Rasmus Dahlin took an elbow to the head. It looked to be unintentional, but Erik Cernak drilled Dahlin right in the face, yet, there was no penalty called. 




The Sabres were in the offensive zone on the power play when it happened, and Dahlin quickly went down to the ice as play continued. Cernak was not penalized for this:

I’m not sure what the referees were looking at, but this seemed to be an extremely obvious call. Forget about the non-penalty call, though, as the worse news is that Dahlin now has a concussion. 

Cernak will likely at least have a hearing with NHL’s Player Safety.
