Maple Leafs’ Dion Phaneuf could face discipline for hit

It seems Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf could be in some hot water.

According to reports late Sunday, Phaneuf will have a hearing with the league — likely of the phone variety, but you never know — over an incident involving Bruins defenceman Kevan Miller during Boston’s 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre.

With 2:17 left, the Bruins’ Miller was rammmed face-first against the boards by the Leafs captain. Replays appeared to show that Phaneuf made contact with Miller’s right shoulder but it was still head-scratching why he received no hit-from-behind or boarding penalty.

In fact, there wasn’t even a minor called on the play.

“Somebody was talking about a hit-from-behind by Dion. I don’t know,” Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said.

Miller left the game but did accompany the Bruins to Calgary.

    I’m skipping the next Leaf game to watch ‘Rochelle Rochelle’, the story of a young girl’s strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk.
