Barbashev is having a hearing for hitting Marcus Johansson in the head

Surely this will quiet the officiating complaints.

NHL: Stanley Cup Final-St. Louis Blues at Boston Bruins Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Editor’s note (7:13 PM) - He got a game.

Ah, the NHL: where justice is consistent, fair, and true.

Nah, just kidding. No one knows what they're doing.

This morning, the league announced that another Blues player will be facing supplemental discipline.

The hit occurred in the first period, and no penalty was called because why would there be a penalty?

The play:

Who knows anymore. The officiating in this league is inexcusably bad, and the fact that this wasn't called a penalty but is now going to result in a suspension or fine is just peak NHL.

Marcus Johansson appeared no worse for the wear.

My guess is a game.

Your thoughts?
