Rangers 'perplexed' by NHL's inconsistency

By Mike Mazzeo

The Rangers issued a statement after rookie winger Carl Hagelin was suspended three games for his elbow to the head of Daniel Alfredsson in Game 2 Saturday.

The New York Rangers accept the NHL's three-game suspension of Carl Hagelin and will not pursue an appeal. However, we are thoroughly perplexed in the ruling's inconsistency with other supplementary discipline decisions that have been made throughout this season and during the playoffs. We will have no further comment on this decision.
