Colin Miller was ejected from the Bruins game earlier tonight against the Coyotes for this hit on Alex Burmistrov. Many people after the game called it a clean, hockey hit and just a hard play, including Burmistrov himself.
Dave Tippett on Colin Miller's hit on Alex Burmistrov: "It's a hard hit ... but I don't think it was an intentional hit to hurt somebody."— Dave Vest (@davest4yotes) March 1, 2017
Colin Miller says he reached out to Burmistrov through a text. Burmistrov said it was a hockey play— Ty Anderson (@_TyAnderson) March 1, 2017
Accordingly so, the Department of Player Safety looks like it won’t dole out any more punishment on C. Miller, via John Shannon.
Don't expect any supp. discipline for Colin Miller for hit on Alex Burmistrov. Full body hit. #cleanandmean— John Shannon (@JSportsnet) March 1, 2017
While nothing is official yet, it’s the right move for the DoPS to make if it’s true.
