Video: Should Tkachuk be suspended for elbow on Doughty?

The desk reacts to the elbow from Flames' Matthew Tkachuk on veteran Drew Doughty. Brian Boucher discusses the need to find balance between defending yourself and a dirty play while Keith Jones predicts a suspension.

There’s no denying that Drew Doughty believes that Matthew Tkachuk’s elbow from Sunday was dirty (and that Keith’s son is a “pretty dirty player” in general). What should the league do about it, though?

Sportsnet’s John Shannon reports that the phone hearing concluded on Monday, though it’s unclear when the NHL will actually announce a decision.

Brian Boucher and Keith Jones discusses what kind of punishment - if any - is warranted for the Calgary Flames forward’s hit on the Los Angeles Kings defenseman. You can watch it in the video above this post’s headline.
