Due to a lack of evidence, Philadelphia Flyers winger Scott Hartnell will not face any supplementary discipline for an alleged biting incident in Thursday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Hartnell took part in a conference call with NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell on Friday morning but will face no suspension or fine. Sources say the referees and linesmen did not see the alleged incident and as such, there was insufficient evidence to further penalize Hartnell.
"It is a combination of three — forwards not coming back [plus the goaltending and defense]. Everything is a team. It is a team game. When things go bad, there are five guys on the ice. When I looked at the [second] goal, five guys made a mistake."
"There's not one first-year guy on the defense. These guys have all been around. Who's the youngest guy — Schultz? This is his fourth year, third year in the NHL. These guys should know what the hell they are doing. Right now we're not playing good enough."
