Petteri Nokelainen out after high stick to eye

Petteri Nokealainen just skated off with a huge gash at or above his right eye following a high stick from Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle — an infraction that was never called by the ref display several clear replays that showed Boyle’s stick rode up and caught Nokelainen flush in the face.

That is the second right winger — if you’re keeping count — that’s gone down on the Blake Wheeler [1]/David Krejci [2] lineĀ as a result of a high stick to the grill. The B’s still lead the Sharks after one period of play.
