2012 NHL Playoffs, Devils Vs. Rangers: No Discipline Expected For Game 4 Hits

None of the hits during a physical Game 4 between the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers will be looked at by the NHL league office for penalty, reports Tim Gulitti of NorthJersey.com's Fire and Ice.

Gulitti writes that an elbow by Rangers forward Marian Gaborik on Marek Zidlicky in the second period should have been deemed a penalty, but that and Ilya Kovalchuk's spearing of Ryan Callahan will go unpunished by the NHL.

New Jersey scored twice on Henrik Lundqvist in the opening period of Monday night's Game 4, Martin Brodeur compiled 28 saves on 29 shots, and the Devils earned a 4-1 victory that evened the series at two games apiece.
