 VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -Philadelphia Flyers forward Jesse Boulerice said he expects to be suspended for cross-checking Vancouver's Ryan Kesler across the face late in an 8-2 rout on Wednesday night.
The hit occurred with 5:41 left and the Flyers leading 7-2. After some pushing and shoving back and forth, Boulerice caught an unsuspecting Ryan Kesler across the face with his stick, leaving the Canucks forward lying motionless on the ice. He eventually got up and skated to the bench on his own.
Boulerice's coach agreed that a suspension is probably forthcoming.
``It's unacceptable, it's something that we can't have, Flyers coach John Stevens said. ``We didn't need to get involved in anything really, we had the hockey game in hand and that was the message on the bench, so that kind of stuff can't happen.''
Boulerice received a match penalty for intent to injure, which comes with an automatic review by the league.
``I'm just lucky my jaw isn't broken, hopefully it's not fractured,'' Kesler said. ``Obviously it's a dirty play and you don't like to see that happen to anyone. ... It shouldn't be in the game.''
Boulerice said he was sorry for the hit.
``I reacted in a bad way the wrong way,'' he said.
