The Uneven Hand Of Justice.... Buzzcast at 3pm

May 13, 2024, 3:41 PM ET [47 Comments]
The Stanley Cup Playoffs brings out the best....and sometimes the worst in the game of hockey. It is a difficult job for officials and the NHL Department of Player Safety to get everything right and hold players to the same standard, but when one incident of a serious nature fails to get reviewed and another does, it makes one scratch their head.

For example, in Game 3 of the Bruins - Panthers series on Friday, Florida's Sam Bennett sucker punches Brad Marchand and knocks him out of the game and Game 4. Bennett did not get a penalty or a hearing. As much as you might say it is karma for the things that Marchand has done in the past, it is still something that should be penalized and/or reviewed.

Fast forward to Sunday, at the end of the Canucks - Oilers game, when Connor McDavid slashes at Carson Soucy and the Vancouver defenseman responds in kind and then cross-checks McDavid to the face.

Soucy is getting a hearing with the DOPS.

We will discuss this and more on the Buzzcast at 3
