The NHL's Department of Player Safety is preparing to fine and/or suspend Jeremy Lauzon of the Boston Bruins for what it has called an illegal hit to the head of Arizona's Derek Stepan. It occurred late in the first period when Lauzon caught Stepan with a high hit against the boards. Check it out:

Stepan left the game, but did return in the third period. Lauzon was assessed a five-minute major and match penalty after a review by the officials.

Boston fans are outraged that Lauzon will have a hearing, not because they think Lauzon's hit was ok, but because the Coyotes Lawson Crouse hit Charlie McAvoy in the head in the same game and only received a minor penalty on the play. So far, no hearing has been announced. See the hit below:





Boston fans were expressing displeasure all over social media, and they may have a case.
