COWEN TO HAVE HEARING FOR HIT ON GIRGENSONS

Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons played a huge role in determining the outcome of Tuesday’s 2-1 shootout win over Ottawa, and later today he’ll be involved in a video that will be watched by Brendan Shanahan at the NHL office in Manhattan.

From the NHL:

Ottawa Senators defenseman Jared Cowen will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety Wednesday for a hit on Buffalo Sabres center Zemgus Girgensons Tuesday night at First Niagara Center.

At 18:02 of the third period, Cowen came across the ice to hit Girgensons as he entered the Ottawa zone. No penalty was called on the play. Girgensons remained in the game.

The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: illegal check to the head. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.

Buffalo won the game, 2-1, in a shootout.
