Dustin Byfuglien had a date with the NHL's department of player safety on Tuesday morning where the Jets' all-star defenceman walked away with out being handed any game suspension for a check he delivered on Montreal's Brendan Gallagher.

Winnipeg Jets defender Dustin Byfuglien will have a telephone hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety for an illegal check to the head - a hit which was incorrectly called elbowing by the on-ice official - on Montreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher in Sunday night's contest. The hearing will reportedly take place at 9am EST, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.
Byfuglien has always played the game on the edge, and has an additional disadvantage in that, even in the toughest hockey league in the world, he's an apex predator and players seem to bounce off of him dramatically. On a number of occasions this season Byfuglien has been at the centre of a of controversial hit, but this Gallagher hit would seem to be a bridge too far for the league's disciplinary arm.
We'll find out how long he'll be out of the lineup, probably early tomorrow.

Lets take a quick look at the 5-1 loss.

The Winnipeg Jets come into Montreal playing their second game of a back-to-back. The Canadiens are humming and have lost only 2 games on the season.
The Jets will be ready as much as possible given the situation; the night before they played a fairly easy game against the struggling Blue Jackets.
Will they be ready for the speed of the Canadiens? We will see.
