Marian Hossa carried off on a stretcher

The Stanley Cup playoffs were barely a week old by the time the league had handed out nine suspensions in the wake of a series of dangerous illegal hits, stickwork and out-of-control brawls.

Torres was suspended indefinitely and faced a disciplinary hearing.
