Matt Martin will have a phone hearing for his kneeing major on Trevor Daley last night. I'd bet on a 1-2 game suspension. #IslesWhen the hit initially happened I didn't think it was as bad as people were making it seem. However, it appears as though the league disagreed so we will likely not see Martin in the lineup tomorrow night in Nashville.
