DETROIT — Anaheim’s Ryan Getzlaf didn’t fear a suspension for Daniel Winnick after his hit on Wings foward Daniel Cleary in Game 5.
Winnick was assessed a five-minute penalty for boarding and did not receive another other discipline from the league.
“I saw it and he went into the boards a little awkward,” Getzlaf said. “I didn’t see it was a deliberate attempt at any kind of injury. Dan stayed down for a while, but he was able to come back in the game. It showed what the actual hit was.”
