In the meantime, enjoy this video of a douche canoe elbowing Spurgeon, proclaiming the penalty to be, uh, not-good, and then ultimately seeing the error of his ways:

Postgame: After comeback falls short, no concerns about Dubnyk's knee | StarTribune.com
Update: While Dustin Byfuglien may very well get away with his needless check on Jason Pominville in a dangerous and vulnerable position last night, I do think Alex Burmistrov gets dinged for his elbow on Jared Spurgeon. Was blatant, similar to Jason Demers (two-game suspension the other day) and Burmistrov was warned earlier this year for an elbow. UPDATE: He avoided suspension but was fined $4,166.67 -- the max allowable under the CBA. Also, Kurtis Gabriel has been reassigned.
