Another Senators video?

TVA Sports: (through google translate) There has already been the one Uber video of the Ottawa Senators out there, but Renaud Lavoie reports there may even be a more compromising video.

“Have we seen everything? What I am told is that no. There is a part that is even more compromising, “he said Wednesday on TVA Sports.

Louis Jean reports that Senators assistant coach Martin Raymond has really been shaken by the situation.

“Martin Raymond is doomed, he has been humiliated. Will he stay in hockey? That, I do not know, but the damage has been done, “added Michel Bergeron.

Renaud Lavoie: Have been told that many of the players who were part of the Uber video are looking at their legal options against the company.

Malkin doesn’t receive a suspension

Chris Johnston: Pittsburg Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin won’t receive any supplementary discipline for his hit on T.J. Oshie last night: “He was deemed to be bracing for contact a fraction of a second after releasing the puck. Didn’t change angle or hit Oshie with his elbow or stick.”
