Unfortunately for Ottawa, they blew a 3-1 lead in the second period before falling behind for the first time in the third. Borowiecki has two points in 33 games this season.

His name may be funny to say, but don't worry you'll see Mark Borowiecki's name plenty enough to get it right.

The bruising defender is leading the NHL with 149 hits thus far, despite losing two games to suspension. His lead is significant, with a 21-hit gap over Matt Martin. The 27-year-old has also posted 63 PIMs and 42 hits in 32 games this season, and averages just over 13-minutes per match. So if you're in need of his type of services, make sure you dial Borowiecki.

Mark Borowiecki has been suspended two games for boarding Tyler Toffoli on Saturday.

You can check out the 95-second explanation via the link below. In short, the department says that the defender had "ample time" to "avoid, or at least minimize contact." And they're right. Toffoli had enough time to look up, find Borowiecki, and turn his body to protect the puck. For his part, Borowiecki has apologized for his actions and agreed that what he did was wrong, and will learn from the experience. He'll be eligible on Saturday the 17th against New Jersey, and he'll forfeit a bit over $12K in salary.
