Flyers cross the line again
"Lupul chipped the puck to that D-man and he went down low to block the puck. I thought it was going to get by him. I let up a bit and finished my check. I think he put himself in a vulnerable position. I definitely didn't intend to injure him.I don't know what else to say.
"It wasn't deliberate; I didn't try to hurt him. I'm not that kind of player. If you look at the all games this year and past years, I'm a guy who finishes his check. He was close to boards. It wasn't like he was two or three feet from the boards. . . . I let up. It's unfortunate he stayed down."
UPDATE Hartnell received a two-game suspension.
