Evgeni Malkin of Pittsburgh Penguins won't face more discipline

After the 2-1 setback at Capital One Arena, the Penguins fumed about their unfortunate luck and Evgeni Malkin's ejection.

Malkin nailed Oshie with a chicken wing to the head in the third period. The Capitals forward left the game and went through the NHL's concussion protocol, having previously visited the trainers' room during the game following a high stick from the Penguins' Olli Maatta. Oshie would return to the game, and he scored the winning goal for the Capitals with 1:14 left in regulation.

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said he wasn't concerned that Malkin might be punished further by the league, and that turned out to be the case.

Following the tense meeting, Oshie told reporters post-game he was unconcerned with whether or not Malkin would receive any supplemental discipline as the Capitals emerged with the victory.

"It's not my concern anymore".

The big Russian's elite skillset does come with some costly discipline issues, which were on full display when Malkin was ejected after delivering an egregious hit to Oshie just 15 minutes before the latter nabbed the game-winner. "I don't care what happens to him".

Others felt right away that the play was dirty. The Player Safety impression of the hit seems at odds with the criteria for a Rule 48 match penalty, in which a player is ejected if he "attempted to or deliberately injured his opponent with an illegal check to the head".
