Just days after Zdeno Chara sent Max Pacioretty to the hospital, we had another “turnbuckle hit” in the National Hockey League. Last night it was Colombus’ R.J. Umberger putting Drew Doughty of the L.A. Kings into the partition near the bench. It wasn’t nearly as violent and didn’t look like there was any bad intentions involved, so residents of Los Angeles won’t be flooding LAPD tip lines. Doughty returned later in the game. (Puck Daddy)
