So Staal gives Prust a left hook, but Prust's head flies to his right...doesn't make sense. Either way, bad sucker punch by Staal, bad acting by Prust.

What do you all think?

Staal was tossed out of the game for that.

Eager got 4 games for this:

Hmm, bad play by Staal, put the ref in a bad position I think. In retrospect it looks like a weak match penalty and a dive, but a first glance it looked like a blatant cheapshot.

Don't like this play all around.

Prust was also laughing on the bench when they showed the replay on the jumbotron.

A dumbass reaction to a clean hit, give him the 4 games, fake or no-fake this doesn't belong in the game.
Im sick of players getting pissy over a clean hit. I think a intent to injure needs to be claimed every time this happens.
Just because I hate all things Penguins, because of the hype, i hope Prust gets his revenge.
Maybe just sucker punch Crosby and start the concussion train.

Prust got away with the league under debate about head... Anything?

Eager? I have been youtubing Probie and Kocer fights. I think that is a punk move to the way the fella's used to square up. In my opinion Eager pulls a bertuzzi without the injury.

2 minutes for roughing, 2 minutes unsportsmanlike - diving

One guy threw a sucker punch and one guy went down like a sucker.

Prust must have majored in drama.

Horrible act by Prust. I would be surprised if there was a suspension. Merely a retaliatory shot from Staal, unlike Eager's cheap shot.

It's certainly not the worst thing I've ever seen, but it was a ***** move by Staal. Reminiscent of Tootoo on Robidas, just not nearly as bad. I just wish Boyle had given him a nice way to remember not to do s*** like that.

Staal already hit him once, i think his punch wasn't needed.
A dive, really? Even if he did dive, this shouldn't be a place where that would be called, everyone was battling, Staal clearly punched at him.
I skate up, punch out the opposition goalie, and we both get penaltys because I say he dove, I punched his helmet, he has to be ok.
I'm fine with the call on the ice, and and hoping for atleast a game, for Stall to think about keeping his hands on his stick.

Good for my fantasy team for the PIM's, but potentially costly for a suspension.

I'm not sure if it was much of a sucker punch at all, they players were scuffling and Staal responded with a punch. Both guys were facing each other and roughing each other up. Staal has been suspended for 1 game (automatic because of the match penalty). The only way he avoids suspsension now is if the league deems the call on the ice unjustified.

I didn't watch the game though, wondering what the announcers had to say. While I can understand seeing a sucker punch, it obviously wasn't that nasty, wondering if you think it's a sucker punch, it's automaticlly a match penatly?

I guarantee you this, if Prust didn't put on the acting show, Staal probably escapes with just a 2 minute roughing penalty.

As far as cheapshots go, that wasn't brutal, but it's still a suckerpunch. It looks like a dive, but honestly I'd cut Prust some slack. It wasn't that hard but he took an unexpected punch right on the button. It's possible his collapse was real.

Of course, it would also kind of mean he has a glass jaw. :P
