Michael Ryder Receives Misconduct for Ugly Hit From Behind on Blake Comeau

Michael Ryder Receives Misconduct for Ugly Hit From Behind on Blake Comeau Less than 24 hours after Montreal’s Maxim Lapierre received a four-game suspension for his hit-from-behind on San Jose’s Scott Nichol on Thursday night, Bruins winger Michael Ryder was tossed from the B’s-Islanders matchup because of a similar incident.

While Lapierre’s dirty play looked intentional, Ryder’s hit on Blake Comeau appeared to be accidental. NESN’s Kathryn Tappen and Barry Pederson take a second look at the hit, which cost Ryder a five-minute penalty and a 10-minute misconduct.
