Dahlin and Matthews get into it, and there probably should be some supplementary discipline to come from that cross-check... pic.twitter.com/ydaeGIvKbG— Shayna (@hayyyshayyy) March 13, 2022
See the list in this post, Ask Peelsy: How many games for Auston Matthews? but there has only been one cross-checking suspension this season.
Toronto’s Auston Matthews has been suspended for two games for Cross-checking Buffalo’s Rasmus Dahlin. https://t.co/yZaJTAZHjv— NHL Player Safety (@NHLPlayerSafety) March 14, 2022
The NHL video explainer is available at the link in the Tweet above, if you want to hear it. The gist of it is that the cross-check hits Dahlin in the neck. The play was not part of hockey action to box out a player, it was retaliation for the shoving match that preceded it.
