The Phoenix Coyotoes are on the verge of gaining a reputation they didn't exactly set out for this postseason.
Forward Martin Hanzal will face a disciplinary hearing with the NHL Player Safety Department on Wednesday as a result of his boarding incident in Game 2 against the Kings on Tuesday.
Hanzal pushed Dustin Brown from behind as the Kings forward approached the end boards while racing for a loose puck in the third period. Hanzal was assessed a boarding major and a game-misconduct, but he could be on the hook for supplemental discipline.
This, of course, occurs less than a month after Phoenix's Raffi Torres was suspended indefinitely for a hit to the head of Chicago's Marian Hossa.
The Kings head into Game 3 in Los Angeles with a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven series.
Check out the video of Hanzal's hit below.
