Boston Bruins defenseman Colin Miller will not be suspended for his hit that forced Arizona Coyotes forward Alex Burmistrov to leave the ice on a stretcher

BOSTON — A person with knowledge of the NHL's decision says Boston Bruins defenseman Colin Miller will not be suspended for his hit that forced Arizona Coyotes forward Alex Burmistrov to leave the ice on a stretcher.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the NHL does not typically announce when no punishment is given. The person says officials deemed Miller's hit clean.

Miller was given a charging major and a game misconduct after he came up on Burmistrov and knocked him on his back in the second period of Tuesday night's game in Boston. Burmistrov was taken off the ice on a stretcher and brought to a local hospital, where he was treated and released.

The Bruins scored a short-handed goal during the ensuing power play and went on to win 4-1.
