Well, this is a bit awkward. One of the reasons cited by the league (via video) for Tkachuk's one-game suspension is, "players are not permitted to make intentional contact with an opponent who is off the playing surface." (Unless it's repeated punches to the head, apparently.)

@BonnieDonald Hard to make sense of it. Fine? Sure. Stern talking to? Sure. But suspension seems a bit excessive. If it had been Curtis Lazar with the tap, I doubt we’re having this conversation.
