During the second period of the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 shooutout victory over Detroit on Wednesday, Joffrey Lupul drilled Detroit defenseman Kyle Quincey from behind, drawing a two-minute boarding penalty.

Quincey was no worse for the wear, and ended up playing over 21 minutes in the game. Thanks to a 41-save performance from Leafs goalie James Reimer, Toronto hung in for the shootout win and improved to 7-1-1 in their last nine.

Lupul, who was suspended two-games last season for a hit to the head on Tampa's Victor Hedman, could be hearing from the NHL again on this one.
