Jacob Trouba received a match penalty for an illegal check to the head of Calgary's Marek Hrivik on Monday night.

Trouba is suspended pending league review of the hit, but coach Paul Maurice believes it could be rescinded. "I've looked at it a bunch of times. I understand the call on the ice, just the way it looks because of the angles of the referees," Maurice said. "And I want that call in exhibition, you don't want to miss something like that and the game gets right out of hand. But I think you'll find it end up being a pretty clean hit."
