Pastrnak faces hearing for check to head of Rangers’ Girardi

Bruins forward David Pastrnak will have a disciplinary hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Friday over his check to the head of the Rangers’ Dan Girardi in the Bruins’ 5-2 loss Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.

The came when Girardi reached up to catch a puck in the neutral zone 10:55 into the second period and Pastrnak came in hard and sent his left shoulder into Girardi’s chin. Pastrnak received a two-minute penalty for an illegal check to the head.

Girardi left the game as part of the NHL concussion protocol, but later returned.

It’ll be the 20-year-old Pastrnak’s first hearing with the Department of Player Safety.
