Oilers' Kassian suspended two games

Oilers' Kassian suspended two games

"If the league is saying it's clean I can do exactly that".

"After speaking with (George) Parros, he explained that the hits weren't dirty so that gave me some clarity on what you can and can't do", said Kassian, who had a phone hearing with the head of the NHL's Player Safety Department. For the second time that night, Tkachuk had caught Kassian with a big, questionable hit near the boards.

Whether they're throwing down on the ice during a Battle of Alberta or throwing down on the internet, these two teams just can't seem to get along. The Flames scored on the powerplay and won the game 4-3.

"I can do what Matthew Tkachuk did", he said.

The Oilers winger felt the need for retribution after what he felt were two "predatorial" hits thrown by his Flames counterpart in last Saturday's game.

"Whether those hits were clean or not, they were predatory to me".

Kassian will miss games against the Nashville Predators Tuesday night and a Thursday night matchup against the Montreal Canadiens.

"You play with fire, eventually you're going to get burned", Kassian said.

Had Tkachuk been willing on Saturday to go toe-to-toe with gloves off, the unpleasantness might have ended already, Kassian said. "But if you play big-boy hockey, you're going to have to answer the bell every once in a while".

"I'd do it all over again", Kassian said.

After the fireworks we saw in a rejuvenated Battle of Alberta on Saturday night, we're now looking forward to when these two teams meet next: January 29 in Edmonton. "I don't think he realizes that we're in the same division, and I have a great memory".
