Claude Giroux Has Been Suspended For Game 5
I can’t say I disagree with the ruling. Giroux clearly targeted the head. You have blinders on if you can't see that. Giroux didn’t leave his feet and Zubrus wasn’t injured, but that doesn't matter– G went out of his way to make contact with Zubrus’ head.
The one part of this that is questionable, though, is Brendan Shanahan citing Giroux’s anger and frustration with the ref as, um, evidence or whatever. That shouldn’t have anything to do with anything.
Suspension czar Shanahan explains his ruling in monotone fashion, after the jump.
