There were 86 penalty minutes assessed in Friday night's first game of the Eastern Conference Semifinals that Providence won 8-5.

According to Mark Divver of the Providence Journal, both Providence coach Bruce Cassidy and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton coach John Hynes have submitted clips to be reviewed by the league office for possible supplemental discipline.

The two plays in question are Bobby Robins' hit on Dylan Reese in the first period and Joey Mormina's hit on Justin Florek in the third period. Florek and Reese are questionable for tonight's game. Both appeared to have possibly suffered concussions in the hits they received.

The first game of the Eastern Conference Semifinals was a wild, high-scoring affair last night. There were 86 penalties called in the game, including 62 at the 13:46 mark of the third period. Providence won the game 8-5 thanks to some great puck movement and high-end skill on display.
