Avalanche upset Johansen not suspended: Theres got to be some consistency

If the one-game suspension given to Drew Doughty after Game 1 of the LA-Vegas series was to set a precedent, then there were a few players who shouldve been under review for supplementary discipline after the second night of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Tom Wilson escaped punishment for his check on Alexander Wennberg, which he said cost the Capitals the game. Nazem Kadri is having a hearing and Leafs Nation is bracing to be without him for at least Game 2 and possibly more.

Nashvilles Ryan Johansen also threw a borderline suspendable hit on Colorado defenceman Tyson Barrie, though he too escaped being disciplined by the league, as it was ruled to be a full body hit.

You saw what happened to Doughty. Theres got to be some consistency, Avalanche GM Joe Sakic told the Denver Post on Friday.

Barrie was asked about the hit after Thursdays game and declined to comment further because he hadnt seen it on replay yet. After Fridays skate, the defenceman was asked again about the hit following news that Johansen had escaped punishment.
