After yet another brutal game between Florida and Boston last night, Panthers forward Sam Bennet has officially had his fate regarding suspension confirmed following a nasty hit to Brad Marchand.

The Florida Panthers and Boston Bruins have consistently proved to be some of the dirtiest players in the NHL, with their series characterized by numerous fights and scattered brawls. However, one nasty hit from Sam Bennet last night left Boston Bruins captain Brad Marchand out of the game for an upper-body injury.
"Sam Bennett with a sneaky sucker punch on Brad Marchand last night.

Dirty."

After the game, Boston Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery provided his full commentary on the situation. Upon his review of the hit, Montgomery implied that he believed Bennet intentionally hit Marchand.
«People can say it wasn't intentional, but we have our view of it.»

However, the clock on his suspension has officially run out. Thus, Sam Bennet will not be held to further disciplinary measures by the NHL Department of Safety.
"The 5PM deadline for the NHL Department of Player Safety to make a ruling on a suspension for Sam Bennett has now passed.

This means that Sam Bennett will not face any supplemental discipline for his hit on Boston Bruins captain Brad Marchand last night.

With Bennet no longer at risk of suspension, it will be full speed ahead for Florida in their game tomorrow evening at Boston's TD Garden. With Marchand likely back on the ice for game four, the Bruins are likely to try giving the Panthers the ultimate payback in their efforts to tie the series.
