Darnell Nurse has been suspended for one game for head-butting Los Angeles’ Phillip Danault

Loading...

The incident occurred late in the second period and Nurse was not penalized on the play. However, he will have to sit out Thursday’s must-win Game 6 matchup versus the Kings. Nurse will need the Oilers to force a Game 7, which would take place on Saturday, without him in order for him to return to the lineup before next season. Nurse has one goal, one assist, eight shots, 13 blocks and 10 hits in five matches this postseason.
