Jason Demers Gets Tossed for Vicious Elbow on Nick Bonino

Stars' d-man Jason Demers got booted for what looked to be an ugly, malicious hit on Penguins' center Nick Bonino. Check the video above to form your own take on the play.

Here's what Demers had to say about it:

"I just mistimed it. I hope he's all right," Demers said, according to the Mike Heika of the Dallas News. "I just tried to counter-hit, and it was a little bit too early. It wasn't malicious."

Stars' coach Lindy Ruff, naturally, echoed Demers' sentiments.

"The Demers play was just reaction to getting hit," Ruff said. "I didn't find anything bad about it."

Dallas won the game, 4-1, to improve to 6-1-0.
