Kulikov has never been in this sort of trouble with the NHL before and that likely led to this relatively light sentence, but it's going to be tough for Stars fans seeing that Seguin...

Blues At Panthers GameDay Storystream: Blues Look To Spoil Panthers Playoff Push

The Blues don't have anything against the Panthers, per se. They just need two points to keep pace with the Predators. The Florida Panthers have exceeded expectations this year thanks to the strong play of several key players, among them Dmitry Kulikov. The Panthers are just four points behind the Boston Bruins for that last wild card spot, and they've hit the point in the season where everything counts, everything matters. Which is why this "hip check" gone wrong by Kulikov on Tyler Seguin is such a bad thing for the Cats: Kulikov has been offered an in-person hearing with the NHL for the...
